In what has to be the greatest news I’ve heard about the upcoming Winter Olympics yet, I just learned that the Mexican downhill skier Hubertus Von Hohenlohe will be wearing a suit modeled after traditional Mariachi garb.
I really hope he’s not just doing this as a joke and that he’s actually competitive. But he is 55 and this is his 5th olympics which is traditionally a young-man’s place, so we’ll have to see. No matter how it turns out I can’t wait to see him flying own the hill wearing this. The only thing that would make it better would be if he carried a trumpet or guitar.
Hit the jump for more shots.
