Czech Republic wears rain boots, uses umbrellas at opening ceremony

It certainly was an odd look, but in 2012, they may have just started a fashion trend.

Maybe they were expecting rain to ruin the parade and didn’t realize that a group of Native Americans performed a dance ritual to ensure good weather.
Still, when it comes to Olympics fashion, nothing compares to Azerbaijan’s pants.
