"It's part of my style, I always had it like this so I'm not going to change," Sweden's Henrik Harlaut told the AFP after almost losing his pants during the men's freestyle skiing slopestyle event Thursday. The 22-year-old added: "I don't think skiing with my ski pants so low is an issue. I have been skiing like this for 10 years now. It is my style and has been for a while. I feel really comfortable."
