Swedish Slopestyle Skier Loses His Pants, Sochi

Henrik Harlaut is bringing baggy pants to Rhosa Khutor Extreme Park. The Swedish slopestyle skier advanced to the men’s finals on Tuesday with a look that is equal parts “Fab Five” and “Bob Marley.” Dreadlocks flowing through the air, pants sagging to his ankles at every jump, the 22-year-old put on a show in more way than one. He lost his skis during his first qualifying run, forcing him to do the walk of shame back up the hill to fetch him, his blue tights evident as his suspenders fought a mostly losing battle to keep the pants somewhere in the vicinity of his waist.
Not that it matters. Harlaut posted a 83.20 on his next trip, good enough to make the medal round. He flashed a “hang loose” sign after advancing and had no plans to cinch up his drawers for the finals.
