Zebra on Ice

Stéphane Lambiel of Switzerland
2006 Torino Olympics

Switzerland's Stéphane Lambiel shed tears of joy when he received the silver medal in Torino. Then again, maybe he simply realized how outlandish his costume was. Skating to Vivaldi's Four Seasons, he braved the ice wearing an orange-and-white zebra-striped top with glittery blue gloves. He later told reporters that the program and the outfit told the story of "a zebra looking at snow for the first time in his life."
