Olympic Nordic combined champion Bill Demong was forced to celebrate Halloween a little early this year.

The four-time Olympian lost a bet to teammate Taylor Fletcher and recently had to wear a costume around Europe as the team trained. Last year, Fletcher lost the bet and had to dress as Captain America for 14 days without washing the suit.

The bets were who could finish a respective season with faster times in cross-country skiing. Nordic combined, of course, combines ski jumping and cross-country skiing.

This year, the skiers let fans vote on Demong’s costume from among Aquaman, an astronaut and a cowboy. Aquaman won by a landslide, to the dismay of Demong’s wife and mother.

Another teammate, Brett Denney, posted this video of Demong’s adventures as Aquaman in Europe, wearing the suit while skiing, ski jumping, eating and traveling through airports.

    Oh, the memories.

    The early season snow on Rabbit Ears Pass on Bart’s (Bard J E) 193 Atomics, one hour zero degree midnight runs to Howelsen Hill as an excuse to smoke something with the snowmakers, full moons at Strawberry Park, pizza/pint, getting screamed at constantly for eating all the girlfriend’s turkey and sprouts….

    Time flies.
