Hubertus von Hohenlohe wants to make an impact on the slopes at the upcoming Sochi Olympics, even if he doesn't win a medal. So the Mexican Alpine skier, already known for his distinctive style, revealed his Mariachi-themed race suit to NBC Olympics this week:












Hohenlohe, who is Mexican of German descent, told NBC,"Until I went to Mexico recently to make a documentary, I never realized what a beautiful, amazing, rich past and culture they have and what a proud people they are. The power to have your own identity is so strong and something I believe in, so I want to give it a go in a very cool, elegant way. I want to celebrate who they are, but of course in my own style."
