The Pyeongchang Games not only host a number of talented athletes, but a number of cool Olympic uniforms as well. One team that has gained a reputation for its attire is Norway's men curling team.

In the past, the team has worn uniforms with wild prints and bright colors. But the team got especially creative during competition on February 14 — aka Valentine's Day. Rather than sport their country's colors, the team members wore pants that were covered in pink and red hearts.

The pants themselves — not the men on the team — have a fan page on Facebook with nearly 500,000 likes.

This isn't the first time the Norwegian curling team's attire has made more noise than their athletic feats. The team's colorful style began to garner attention at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

"Curling is kind of similar to golf, very traditional," Norwegian second Christoffer Svae told NBC Sports. "When we started playing in colored pants, it was breaking tradition. It was turning heads, for sure."

The team makes a point to wear styles that incorporate red, white, and blue, which are the colors of Norway's flag. The 2010 pants featured an argyle pattern. In 2014, after scoring a sponsorship from Loudmouth, a company that usually designs uniforms for golfers, the team flaunted different patterns for each match at the Sochi Games.

Because most curling teams opted for basic black pants, Norway stood out from the crowd.

Norway will continue to make a splash in PyeongChang. Svae told NBC Sports that the team currently has 12 different outfits planned, which is enough to get them through the medal round.

"Whatever [the designers] come up with, we're never really surprised," "We've seen it all."

Though the Valentine's Day pants got the team a lot of love, it did not give it's members a win.
