Fencing masks take early lead in coolest uniform race

(AP)

If you tuned in to fencing early Saturday morning -- and you should, because it's awesome -- you caught a glimpse of the early leader in best uniforms. As modeled by American Nicole Ross, the already menacing fencing masks took on a layer of patriotism with the addition of the American flag*. The whole goal of the Olympics is to get your flag raised. To get closer to the goal, it's all up in your opponent's face while you're waving a sword at them.

* The British team also has their flag on their masks, but whatever. U-S-A! U-S-A!
