Mexico's lone Winter Olympic representative is a 55-year old German prince named Hubertus von Hohenlohe who moved to Mexico because his family owned a Volkswagen dealership there. He is six-time Olympic downhill skier, as well as a world-class photographer and pop musician.

While he's not likely to win a medal when the games begin in Sochi next week, he is sure to garner some attention, and not just because he is a 55-year-old pop-singing, picture-taking downhill-skiing prince.

The Olympics truly are about uniting the world under the banner of sports and competition, and there may not be a sports figure more worldly than von Hohenlohe, who has ties to Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Liechtenstein and Mexic




This is just amazing.
