10 of the Coolest Olympics Helmets
During the young dancer's treatment she was introduced to Brad Spence, a Sochi-bound skier who broke his leg just before the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin. It was during one of his regular visits to the hospital to see O'Blenes that the skier caught the 17-year-old girl doing something "amazing." O'Blenes uses "zen doodling" to pass the time while in hospital.
So inspired by her doodles, Spence commissioned O'Blenes in December 2013 to create something special for his trip to Sochi — a helmet with a one-of-a-kind design.
This was the result.
The 22-year old Russian has put his phone number on the side of his helmet, just to see what happens.
The young snowboarder has received about 2,000 texts: ”I've got a collection of pictures,” he said. “It's really boring in the Olympic Village, you know?” Looks like he might be in for some entertainment, responding to whatever it is people have sent him – especially if it means using some of the 100,000 condoms distributed to the athletes village (apparently Putin was serious about keeping Sochi safe).
