The Olympic flair is displayed around the Beijing Games


From an earring that looks like a curling stone to a country’s flag painted on fingernails, Olympic flair is displayed by athletes and others in a variety of ways at the Beijing Games. .

It’s not always easy to spot, but props are popping up on venues around the Games. Look closely to see necklaces with Olympic rings, messages written on the hands with markers and even tattoos. A South Korean curler had the mascot Bing Dwen Dwen – possibly the star of the Games – painted on a fingernail. A Canadian skateboarder wore a mouth guard with a maple leaf.

The flair displayed isn’t always tied to the Olympics, and it’s not always by the athletes. During the women’s halfpipe final, a volunteer was spotted sporting a rubber ducky on top of her helmet.
