The Mexican Olympic Ski Uniform is Amazing!
Hubertus von Hohenlohe, will be representing Mexico again next month at the Sochi Winter Olympics. The only athlete they are sending to the games.”The Prince” first raced on the World Cup tour at age 22 in 1981, and made his Olympic debut at Sarajevo in 1984.
These uniforms are awesome. It pays homage to mexican culture while brining a lightheadedness to the most serious sporting event. To top it off the guy wearing the suite is an actual prince adding to the awesome absurdity of the uniforms.
Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg
Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (born 2 February 1959 in Mexico City) is a MexicanAlpine skier, photographer, businessman, and a pop singer known as Andy Himalaya and Royal Disaster. He is descended from the reigning dynasty of a former principality in what is now Germany. Under Mexican law there is no Mexican royalty, even in those cases of double citizenship. As such, Mr Hohenlohe is a German prince and a Mexican citizen.

So the oldest olympian in the games, who is also a prince, and has a great sense of humor/fashion sense as I state above is also a pop singer. I know, this guy is my hero too. Check out one of his music videos:
