Speed Skaters

February 17, 2010

I’ve been unexpectedly intrigued by the Winter Olympics this week — I was glued to the screen last night for figure skating, watched in amazement at the madness of mogul skiers but what I’ve been loving the most is men’s speed skating.

I guess its a combination of the speed, grace and power of the athletes, but I think it also has a lot to do with the outfits. They make the athletes look as finely tuned as thoroughbreds at a racecourse, or dolphins hunting in the ocean — there’s something so graceful and sleek about it. And the muscles!! The glasses and helmets make them look so futuristic too – reminds me of Balenciaga from a few seasons back. LOVE!
