Norway’s men’s curling team is known for its sartorial splendour. Or, put another way, their wacky pants.
They didn’t disappoint on their first day of Olympic curling competition — sporting candy-pink pants covered in pink and red hearts in honour of Valentine’s Day.
Their “normal” uniform, which they will presumably wear for the rest of the tournament, is a slightly more toned-down pant-and-blazer combo that looks like paint splatters in the red, white and blue colours of Norway’s flag.
In Sochi, they had a variety of outfits: one of wavy lines, one with roses, and some patterned with the colours of the Norwegian flag.
In Vancouver, they sported a diamond argyle pattern in a variety of colours.
Unfortunately, the players’ pink pants didn’t sufficiently dazzle the Japanese, and Norway went down 6-4 in their opening game.
