Mexican Olympic Athletes

Cheer on the Mexican Olympic Athletes

 Unique Uniforms & Multi-cultural…..


If any team is awarded a  Gold Medal for their Olympic uniforms, it will be the Mexican Ski team competing in this year’s Winter Olympics.  There are actually 4 Mexicans competing in these Olympics – 3 in the ski competition.    In fact,  this is the largest Mexican Winter Olympic team since 1992.

What’s interesting about the Mexican team is that it encompasses multiculturalism.  Several of the athletes are nationalized Mexicans or hold dual-citizenship from the United States or Canada.  For more information on the competitors and their interesting backgrounds, please check out this story from the San Diego Union Tribune.

Representing Mexico in Alpine Skiing, Cross- Country Skiing and Freestyle Skiing will be Rodolfo Dickson, Sarah Schleper and German Madrazo.

The ski team uniforms, which feature colorful bedazzled skulls in a “Day of the Dead” theme were designed  by Hubertus von Hohenlohe, a European Prince, who represented Mexico in six Winter games.  In his last Olympic competition he memorably wore a mariachi inspired ski outfit.

Ovación a los atletas olímpicos mexicanos.

Singulares y multiculturales uniformes. . .

Si un equipo se merece la medalla de oro por sus uniformes olímpicos, son el equipo de esquí mexicano que compite este año en las Olimpiadas de Invierno. Hay 4 mexicanos compitiendo en estas Olimpiadas; 3 en la competencia de esquí. De hecho este es el equipo mexicano más grande que haya participado en als Olimpiadas de Invierno desde el año 1992.

Lo que es interesante del equipo mexicano es que es multicultural. Diversos atletas se han nacionalizado mexicanos o cuentan con doble nacionalidad de los Estados Unidos y Canadá. Para mayor información sobre los competidores y sus interesantes trayectorias, por favor echen un vistazo a esta historia del San Diego Union Tribune.


Rodolfo Dickson, Sarach Schleper y Germán Madrazo representan a México en esquí alpino, en esquí de fondo y en estilo libre.


Los uniformes del equipo se caracterizan por deslumbrantes y coloridas calaveras del Día de Muertos que fueron diseñados por Hubertus von Hohenlohe, un príncipe europeo que representó a México en seis juegos de invierno. Es difícil olvidar que en su ultima competencia olímpica portó un uniforme de esquí inspirado en los mariachis.
