The U.S. Olympic Ski Team Gets Help From Marvel To Look Superheroic On The Slopes

Captain Marvel and Captain America are back in the public eye well ahead of May’s Avengers: Infinity War and 2019’s Captain Marvel as the US Olympic ski team dons the iconic costumes of the superheroes for their runs in Pyeongchang.

Check out gold medal-winning ski legend Lindsey Vonn wearing Cap’s stars and stripes. Vonn is trying to get back on the winning track after injuries derailed much of her 2014 Olympic campaign.

In 2010, she won the gold medal in the appropriately superheroic downhill race (you need knees and senses enhanced by gamma rays to excel in the downhill) and won the bronze in the Super-G. She’s dedicating this Olympics, which will be her last at 33 years old, to her late grandfather. Saying she’s going to win for him.

Anyway, as long as we’re on the subject of Winter Olympics fashion, why did they decide to go with the gloves made famous in Dumb and Dumber if the theme is superheroes?

The Captain Marvel suit looks almost exactly how it will when Brie Larson puts it on. Oh, and are we going to see Captain Marvel in Infinity War or what? It looks perfect. Hopefully, the awesomeness on display can translate to medal domination.
