Hey Suitors, the athletes competing at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang may have the snowy season on lock, but our favorite legal team kicks ass winter, spring, summer and fall! So just for fun, we’ve put together a rundown of which Suits characters we’d send to bring home the gold if Pearson, Specter, Litt was granted nation status. Cue the opening ceremonies!
Harvey’s need for speed makes him our go-to guy for any sport that involves bombing down a snowy ski slope at 90 miles an hour. The only question is, do those racing suits in come in pinstripes?
This couples event comes down to chemistry, and we think Rachel and Mike have the spark necessary to take the gold. Not to mention, Mike’s lithe physique (his words, not ours) would certainly look fetching in the sparkly, feathery, animal print-y costumes that have become de rigueur on the ice!

Bobsled isn’t about going fast, it’s about control -- the tiniest steering adjustments mean the difference between victory and a brutal crash. Donna has navigated the sensitive ship of Harvey’s career with enough finesse and grace to convince us that she’s the one we want piloting our bobsled to olympic glory (with Benjamin loyally in his place behind her as brake man, obvi).
Cross-country skiing for miles at a time, only to stop and snipe targets with deadly accuracy -- sounds pretty damn 007 if you ask us. There’s only one legal eagle on the Suits roster bad ass enough to handle a job like that… and it ain’t Harvey Specter. We’re making the call for Jessica Pearson on this one. Woman has ice water in her veins, ‘nuff said.
Louis’s propensity for reckless decisions is just the type of leap-before-you-look attitude we want in a ski jumper. And if he doesn’t stick the landing? Well, we always say that no one crashes and burns better than Louis.
Things can get downright nasty in the middle of a pack of speed skaters, so we’re sending Louis’ own black swan, Katrina Bennet, to throw a few elbows at the competition.

Curling looks suspiciously more like a game than a sport, but either way we’re pretty sure it’s a lot of fun. That’s why we’re throwing together the team of Donna, who seems like a hoot; Robert Zane, who also seems fun (and is an enthusiast of another sport that might actually be a game, golf); and Rachel, who kind of seems like one of those people who …um…really looks forward to spring cleaning (no hate)!
Remember Mike’s emo haircut? That was the same cut that every kid with a Burton sticker on their backpack was rocking back in the day. So we’re pretty confident Mike can stick a 720 backside-fakie-grabbie. Okay, so we don’t know what we’re talking about. But what we do know that Mike used to be a bike messenger in New York City -- he can definitely handle the halfpipe.
We’re pulling the full PSL roster for this one -- we’ve got Harvey, Mike, and Jessica on our front line; Donna, Rachel, and Robert Zane on defense; Katrina Bennett and Gretchen coming off the bench as our enforcers; and we’re banking on Louis’s love of felines to translate into cat-like reflexes tending goal. Throw in Benjamin as our equipment manager and we think we’re looking at another Miracle on Ice!
