He’s a snowboarder! Why Apologize? Kokubo?

Upon arrival for the Vancouver Winter Olympics, the Japan Ski Association promptly banned 21 year-old snowboarder Kazuhiro Kokubo for not properly wearing his suit-and-tie Olympic outfit to the proper specifications. Coming off the plane, Kokubo had loosened his tie, untucked his shirt and lowered his pants, which to be perfectly honest, was a better match for his signature dreadlocks than the standard look.

Kokubo knows more about the sport that he’s an Olympic hopeful in than anyone else. Let him be…cool.
