Some Of These Winter Olympics Uniforms Are Pretty Out There [Images]

Feast your eyes on the Norwegian men’s curling team.

One of the best things about the Olympics is watching sports you would otherwise never pay attention to, and curling is one that stands out.

The Norwegians are so revered for their outfits that there’s even a Facebook page called ‘The Norwegian Olympic Curling Team’s Pants‘, and it’s rocking more than 480 000 likes.

Take a look at what they wore yesterday, for example:

But enough about them, because there have been plenty of bold fashion statements made in Pyeongchang this year.

With the help of Business Insider, here are some of our favourites:

The Mexican Olympic ski team’s Day of the Dead inspired uniforms are a clear standout:

This South Korean skeleton racer’s helmet is designed to look like superhero Iron Man’s mask:

According NBC, Sung-bin is “obsessed” with Iron Man. He’s seen all the movies and collects related figurines. In fact, he’s even called Iron Man by some. We can see why.

The Canadian snowboarding team’s jackets were designed to look like sweaters:

Nicole Hensley, the US women’s hockey goalie, displays the Statue of Liberty on her mask:

There was actually some controversy surrounding the image of the Statue of Liberty on this helmet. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) debated on whether or not it should be allowed, as some thought Lady Liberty was too political: “political symbols” are not allowed on Olympic uniforms.

Pretty cool, but not “meme-lord” cool.

You can find more somewhat precocious fashion choices here.
