Fashion Police: 2010 Winter Olympic Games

They might be among the best athletes in the world but, when it comes to style, some of the competitors in this year’s 2010 Winter Olympic Games could sure use a tip or two if they want to win a Gold Medal in fashion.


Figure Skating

Sure, the Swiss pairs figure skating team, which is made up of 20-year-old Antoine Dorsaz and 16-year-old Anais Morand are cute, but we’re not so sure about the outfits they chose to wear for their long program during the figure skating finals.



We like the Burberry print of the fabric, but Anais shorts are pretty darn short, and both skaters’ tees are quite tight. Still, despite their questionable choice in clothing, the crowd booed when the judges only gave the pair high enough marks to oput them in 15th spot out of 20.


The pair from the Ukraine gave a great skate and set the standard for unusual costumes when they glided onto the ice in some very shiny blue unitards during the Pairs Competition.



Both Stanislav Morozov and Tatiana Volosozhar sported the electric-blue outfits, going against the usual dress code of pants for the boy and a short skirt or leotard for the girl.


Curling

Norway’s Men’s Curling Team drew stares when they stepped on the ice in Vancouver for a training session. Their blue, grey, white and red diamond-patterned pants were made in California and, because they got so much attention in them, the Norwegians are thinking about wearing them to actual games, as well.



Snowboarding

The American snowboarding team is said to be pretty upset after seeing some of the tighter-fitting pants riders from other countries, including Canada, are wearing. Nick Baumgartner said he wants to see the “cool factor” stay in snowboarding and worries about the sport going to tight, spandex speed suits. And another Team USA member, Nate Holland, said the Canadian team is pushing the limits of snowboarding gear, which has traditionally been loose-fitting.

    A year ago my grandfather had died. It's still hard, but in time, everything will be okay, I believe. Just recently my friend's mom died.

    Dear Jaclyn, dont be ashamed to be apart of this generation because there are some children who will be positive and in no way like Giavanna. Giavannna was probably exposed to a lot of stuff, influenced by someone\something,or not in her right mind. try to FORGIVE AND FORGET. and be thankful that you have it better than her.                                                                                           -samkitty
