Pants fall off Winter Games skier during run

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Feb 13, 2014

Henrik Harlaut, 22, of Sweden almost lost his pants during the ski slopestyle qualifying round as he crashed into seventh place, exposing his bright blue and purple-trimmed briefs. 

"I've got suspenders -- so they're always secure," assured Harlaut to Yahoo Sports.

Norwegian skier Per Kristian Hunder commented on Harlaut's pants-less finish, "He's always been the most baggy," further reports Yahoo Sports. "It's just his style. And people love it. We have a pretty wide stance. I guess we could all ski with our pants down to our knees."

Harlaut's highest score of the day was marked at 84.4.
