Most fascinating outfits and uniforms at the Winter Games

No matter how fast a racer skied or how hard a figure skater ate ice during a triple lutz, most people will remember one thing: What the athletes wore.

Yes, the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games are, for better or worse, almost as much a fashion show as a celebration of world peace and athleticism.

So, with that in mind, here are some of the most hideous, scary and amazing Olympic team outfits!

If the idea of skeleton (speeding 90mph headfirst down an ice slide) doesn't scare you into emptying your bowels, these Canadian team helmet designs might. The creepy illustrations are sure to up the ante on intimidation.
