With the Winter Games now only a fortnight away, the nations taking part have been showcasing their outfits – or in the case of Russian curler Anna Sidorova – the lack of one.
While the German team have unveiled a rather garish head-to-toe concept, incorporating a unique blend of orange, blue and yellow, Sidorova is likely to have set pulses racing following her saucy photoshoot.
The 22-year-old, who will take to the ice in front of her home crowd at the Sochi Games, is seen strutting her stuff in black lingerie and heels.

Sidorova will be skip of the Russian team at the Olympics, and her risque outfit, is likely to raise her profile away from the rink, too.
The United States team have also courted controversy for their Opening Ceremony attire which was revealed on Friday.
The Americans faced an avalanche of criticism for their Ralph Lauren kit with one Twitter user describing it as 'ugly Xmas sweater party attire'.
Meanwhile, at least five European countries' Olympic committees and the United States received letters in Russian on Wednesday making a 'terrorist threat' before the Sochi Games, but Olympic chiefs said they posed no danger.

Despite the assurances, the letters to committees in Italy, Hungary, Germany, Slovenia and Slovakia briefly caused alarm and underlined nervousness about security at the £30billion event on which Russian President Vladimir Putin's legacy may depend.
The US Olympic Committee later confirmed that it also received a letter by email. Suicide bombers killed at least 34 people in a city in southern Russia last month, Islamist militants have threatened to attack the Winter Games and security forces are hunting a woman suspected of planning a suicide bombing and of being in Sochi already.
