If you doubt that ski uniform is the real thing, here’s a tweet sent by NBC’s official Olympics feed.

If it's real (and it seems it is) this Mexico Olympic ski team member's uniform is something else http://t.co/VBGNGGAVLd

RYOT.org reports that there’s more to this skier than meets the eye.
Prince Hubertus von Hohenloh — he was born in Mexico, but is German royalty — has already competed in five Olympics as a slalom skier. At 55, he’s set to become the second-oldest winter Olympian in history. He’s also a pop-singer and a world-class photographer, making him arguably the most interesting guy at the 2014 Olympics.
