Skeleton is one of the most high-octane events at the .
Starting with a dead sprint and a dive, athletes rocket down the mountain at speeds up to 90 miles per hour just inches from the ice as they chase Olympic glory.
But in addition to being some of the most death-defying action you can find in the sporting world, skeleton also features some of the coolest fashion you'll find this side of the figure skating rink.
Athletes adorn their helmets with jaw-dropping designs that celebrate their country, competitive spirit, and yes even their favorite movies, resulting in amazing images as they race towards the finish line.
Below you can take a look at some of the best helmets skeleton riders have brought to Pyeongchang 2019 thus far.

Sungbin Yun of Korea
