Skeleton sliders show their personalities in a variety of ways through their intense helmet designs.
Skeleton is one of the most high-octane events at the Winter Olympics.
Starting with a dead sprint and a dive, athletes rocket down the mountain at up to 90 mph just inches from the ice as they chase Olympic glory.
But in addition to the death-defying action, skeleton also features some of the coolest fashion you'll find this side of the figure-skating rink.
Athletes adorn their helmets with jaw-dropping designs that celebrate their country, competitive spirit, and, yes, even their favorite movies, resulting in amazing images as they race toward the finish line.
Take a look at some of the best helmets skeleton sliders have brought to the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Frimpong is the only athlete representing Ghana at the 2018 Winter Olympics. His helmet depicts a rabbit escaping the clutches of a lion — a metaphor he has used to describe his life.
Yun is the favorite to win the men's skeleton event and bring home gold for the host nation. He's also a big fan of Iron Man — so much so that he's turned himself into a Tony Stark of sorts as he shoots down the ice.
Grotheer represents his home country by proudly displaying the German coat of arms, a black eagle, on his helmet.
