Olympic Skier Wears Mariachi-Inspired Race Suit for Mexico

International teams about to enter the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi have been unveiling their outfits, proving that this is a year for some really creative sportswear. Among the Olympians wearing inventive attire is Mexican alpine skier Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe who recently revealed his mariachi-inspired race suit. The 55-year-old athlete has opted to celebrate Mexican culture with the festive design for his sixth go in the Olympic games.

Though many doubt his chance of placing high enough for a medal, the multitalented skier certainly plans on having a good time. He has already donned the spandex suit while playing with a live mariachi band at the Plaza Garribaldi in Mexico. He even had the musicians write song lyrics on his race helmet to take with him to the Games.
