Henrik Harlaut reached the men's ski slopestyle final but his pants almost didn't make it with him. The 22-year-old Swedish skier seemed to be having at least as much difficultly keeping up his ski pants as navigating the course at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park during qualification on Thursday.

"It's part of my style, I always had it like this so I'm not going to change," Harlaut later told AFP of his baggy pants.

Despite having his ski pants drop to his knees during qualifying, Harlaut advanced to the final. He finished in sixth place as U.S. skiers swept the medals.

"He's always been the most baggy," Norwegian skier Per Kristian Hunder told Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. "It's just his style. And people love it. We have a pretty wide stance. I guess we could all ski with our pants down to our knees."
