This Olympics I’m all about the sliding sports – Bobsleigh, Luge, Skeleton. One thing that I didn’t know about Skeleton is that the athletes can choose to decorate their helmets with awesome designs.
Here’s my favorite:
Katie Uhlaender’s Eagle and Stripes helmet.
The Brain helmet is pretty cool too:
John Fairbairn is from Canada though, and as of today, I don’t like them that much. It will pass, but today they and us are not friends.
Another Canadian, Mellisa Hollingsworth, has what looks like a T-Rex on her helmet:
Here’s an album containing a bunch more helmet art.
Finally, here’s the Silver Medal winner from the USA, Noelle Pikus-Pace.
