If you haven’t heard by now, Mexican alpine skier Hubertus von Hohenlohe is the most interesting man in the 2014 Winter Olympics. When Hohenlohe hits the slopes for the Sochi Games, he will be rocking an amazing mariachi inspired uniform.

During his send off to Sochi, Hohenlohe received the Mexican flag that he will be carrying during the Opening Ceremonies as Mexico’s only athlete in the Winter Olympics.

To top it all off, Hohenlohe was wearing his mariachi outfit and even performed with a mariachi band and eventually signed autographs with those lucky enough to witness the epic celebration.

“It was a great time,” The Olympic Prince said, via “I sang ‘El Rey,’ ESPN Desportes was there, the Olympic Committee had a crew there, but they came and left too early otherwise we would have had the coolest time ever.”

To complete his uniform for the Winter Games, Hohenlohe had the mariachi band write song titles and lyrics on the helmet that he will be wearing as he competes on Feb. 22.

Hohenlohe has a very slim chance of winning a medal in Sochi, but at least the 55 year old is taking everything in and getting everyone behind him.
