Swedish skier Henrik Harlaut wipes out, pants almost fall down (GIF)
Swedish freestyle skier Henrik Harlaut nearly gave us our second wardrobe malfunction of the Winter Olympics on Thursday when his pants almost fell down during the qualifying round of the ski slopestyle competition. Harlaut is known for wearing extremely baggy ski pants. He has suspenders to hold them up, but that didn’t stop viewers from getting a show.
“I’ve got suspenders,” Harlaut said after finishing seventh in the competition, via Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. “So they’re always secure.”
When watching Harlaut wipe out, you have to wonder if the pants hinder his performance. You would think they would limit his mobility if nothing else.
“I don’t find it difficult,” he said. “I’ve skied like that the past 10 years. It is what it is.”
Between Harlaut’s saggy pants and that speedskater who unzipped and almost gave us a show, there have been some hairy moments in Sochi thus far. Eh, that’s probably a poor choice of words.
