South Korean athlete Yun Sung-Bin wore a helmet painted to be like Marvel's Iron Man during day one of the men's skeleton in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang, South Korea.

It is unknown if Marvel sponsored, endorsed, or approved the usage of Iron Man in Yun's outfit.

After the first day of men's skeleton, Yun is in first place with a chance at winning the gold medal - which would be a first for South Korea in any sliding sport.
