Skeleton athletes go racing down a track at speeds upwards of 80 mph. Speeds that fast make wearing a helmet not just an accessory but a necessity. But, that doesnt mean the helmet cant look cool while serving its purpose. Through the first few days of skeleton training days, the artistry on the helmets has been on full display. Every helmet has a story. From the self-explanatory, like Americans Katie Uhlaenders patriotic display, to the more complicated, like Ghanas Akwasi Frimpong. Frimpongs helmet is called The Rabbit Theory.
