Yesterday, the Norwegian mens' curling team unveiled their new uniforms for the Sochi Olympics, and as per usual, they're outstanding. That got us thinking: the Olympics have long been a showcase for funky, sometimes downright questionable fashion statements. In the gallery above, you'll find a roundup of some of the most outrageous sporting gear in recent memory (excluding figure skating, because that would quickly take over the entire gallery).
