If you thought the freezing temperatures of the Winter Olympics means the national team uniforms won't be as flashy as the Summer Games, you haven't seen the Norwegian curling team.
For the third-straight Games, the famed Norwegian curlers are sure to be crowd-pleasers with their garish red-and-blue pants and matching jackets. The wild get-ups are courtesy of a partnership with Loudmouth Golf, a Sonoma County-based sportswear brand. The company was founded in 2000 and got its first big client in golfer John Daly, who sported their gear while banned from the PGA Tour in 2009.
Loudmouth inked a deal to provide Norway with curling uniforms for the 2010 Olympics, launching them both to greater fame.
"Whatever they come up with, we're never really surprised," athlete Christoffer Svae told Time. "We've seen it all."

Although more subdued in style, the Team USA uniforms for PyeongChang are no less unusual. The down parkas American athletes have been issued feature a built-in heater. The parkas have three heat settings, controlled by phone, and can be turned on at the touch of a small button. The heat comes via electronic-printed ink designs, which provide heat for up to 11 hours on the lowest setting. (バッテリー駆動ヒーター内臓ジャケット:携帯電話調整付き、11時間持続) "It's the most technologically advanced jacket ever produced," David Lauren of Ralph Lauren Corp. told USA Today. "There have been heatable blankets for kids before but they have wires. This is a fabric with ink that heats up — it's weightless, it's conductive and it's immediate."
They're going to need that extra dose of warmth; temperatures are set to be in the teens in PyeongChang this weekend.
