Czech Winter Olympic Team Challenges Victoria's Secret to 'Walk Off' on Catwalk: Are they too Hot to Handle or too Cold to Hold?
The winter Olympics are almost here, just three months until the opening ceremonies in South Korea. The Czech Olympic team hit the runway in their stylish new winter collection. The uniforms are of course, in national colours, predominantly white. Designed by Czech firm Alpine Pro.
The uniforms theme this Olympics is the number 100, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Czechoslovak Republic. The golden number 100 appear on the entire collection.
Continuing the historic them, the must have item of the collection is the double sided, white and gold jacket. Inspired by snowboarder Eva Samková’s 2014 win in Sochi. Durning which the entire team flipped their jackets inside out revealing a chic gold lining.
As some of you may recall, the team unveiled the Raškovka bobble hat earlier this year commemorating the victory of ski jumper Jiří Raška at the ’68 Grenoble Winter Olympics.
The collection is not only fashionable, the high tech uniforms underwent extreme testing by a number of top athletes, including Kateřina Neumannová, former Czech Olympic ski champion at the Turin 2006 Olympic games.
The Czech team is expected to kill it this year, with some experts forecasting they will bring home as many as nine medals from Pyeongchang.
