[part title=”Henrik Harlaut allowed to compete in snowboard slopestyle”]
A skier on Whitelines?! Let the the keyboard bashing commence.
But in all seriousness, the Swedish slopestyle skier Henrik Harlaut not only put on a show of some of the most progressive and stylish snow-sliding we’ve ever seen but did so whilst displaying true snowboarding characteristics.
With the wildest hair on display at the winter Olympics since Heikki Sorsa, E-Dollo as he’s know whipped down the Sochi course in a frenzied style that echoed that of the mohawked Scandi from 2002. He rocked the biggest smile of the games, had a specially made outfit so he could make a tit out of himself and only stopped grinning and skiing to bark at the camera, declare we’re all ‘one family with one love’ and remind the Olympic audience that ‘Wu Tang is for the children.
Seriously, you can’t get more ‘snowboarding’ than that. We’re not saying he should put down his skis, just that we’d like him to come party with us in Pyeongchang 2018.
