The Olympic Games officially commence on Friday, but at least one Olympian has already scored an impressive title.
Hubertus von Hohenlohe has been named the "Most Interesting Olympian in the World" by NBC, who is airing the Games. It's a well-deserved moniker, too.
The slalom skier – who is Mexico's sole competitor in these Games – has represented Mexico in six Olympic Games. He's also a 55 year old German prince whose grandfather, Kaiser Franz II, was the last Holy Roman emperor. He is fluent in five languages, palled around with Andy Warhol, is the heir to an automobile fortune and will be the second-oldest winter Olympian in history when he hits the Sochi slopes in his mariachi-inspired uniform.
