Grading best and worst outfits

Grading the opening ceremony's best and worst outfits

by David P. Woods, theScore.com, Feb 9, 2018

The 92 nations competing at PyeongChang 2018 have completed their marches into the stadium and the XXIII Winter Olympics are officially underway.
Some nations looked good marching in. Others, not so much.
In the spirit of judged Olympic events like figure skating, halfpipe snowboarding, and moguls, we're here to pass our own judgment on the best and worst Winter Olympics attire.

- Best -

Bbivmx8BERMUDA
Bermuda's one athlete and two coaches marched in the opening ceremony in shorts, as the nation always does. Temperates in PyeongChang are well below freezing.
Respect.
Grade: A




Bbiv9ax_2TONGA
He did it again.
Tonga's Pita Taufatofua and his ridiculously shiny torso made international headlines when he entered at the Rio 2016 opening ceremony. He's back, this time as a cross-country skier, and he was again shirtless and oiled up as he entered the stadium despite the frigid temperature.
Grade: A 

BbivjwwCANADA
We've seen better looks from Canada than this latest athleisure offering, but it's still pretty slick.
Grade: B+

 




- Worst -

Bbiv6nfUNITED STATES
It's not that Team USA's Ralph Lauren-designed outfits (which include heated jackets!) are ugly. For the most part, they are classy and attractive.
But those gloves. Those are unforgivable.
Grade: C- 

BbivfhwSLOVENIA
The opening ceremony took place early in the morning in North America, which made these neon green outfits especially blinding to tired eyes.
Grade: D 

BbivjwlOLYMPIC ATHLETES FROM RUSSIA (OAR)
Due to Russia's ban from PyeongChang 2018 due to widespread doping, clean athletes from the nation are forced to compete under the Olympic flag.
It's no surprise these athletes were barred from wearing Russia's white, blue, and red to the opening ceremony, but the IOC really couldn't give them a more appealing look than plain gray jackets over blue jeans?
Grade: F
