Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics: My Recap

I wanted to do a quick recap of my favorite moments from this year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi. Surprisingly, everything that came to my head had nothing at all to do with one of our awesome athletes winning a medal.

I thought about the perfectly patriotic Team USA sweaters:

I thought about the Olympic ring that wouldn’t open.

I thought about Bob Costas’ pink eye. Poor, Bob.


I thought about figure skater Ashley Wagner’s look of disbelief that became THE meme of the Olympics.

I thought about that yellow water in Sochi hotel rooms. Yuck.

But then I remembered these three. Yes, one of the coolest moments from the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi was the birth of a BROMANCE.

Sochi Olympics Freestyle Skiing Men


How cute are these guys? That’s Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy, and Nick Goepper. They are the gold, silver, and bronze medal winners in the first ever men’s slopestyle skiing event. Yep. We SWEPT that category and these three are now a tight trio. Josh (the one wearing that gold medal) lost his dad six months before the Olympics and he dedicated his epic win to him. Josh had to lean on his teammates during this difficult time and they’ve become a close family. They even roomed together in the Sochi dorms (while bonding over the horrible food and living conditions.) And they’ll definitely be bonded for life over this:

An Olympian’s dream! Your face on Kellogg’s Corn Flakes! Nick tweeted: “Is this even real? The slopestyle dream team is on the cover of a cereal box!”

The three single (and available!) cuties were even asked about their dream Valentine’s Day dates. Joss wanted to try his magic on Harry Potter actress Emma Watson. Silver medalist Gus and bronze winner Nick are crushing on pop stars Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, respectively.  Miley did respond back on Twitter so Gus’ popularity on social media is super high among the teen girls right now.

Gus also made headlines for being one of the many athletes who are trying to save the stray dogs in Sochi. He hopes to bring a bunch of them back to the states. The dogs are seen as a big problem in Sochi and the City Hall there has ordered them killed. Yikes. So athletes, like Gus, are trying to do what they can to find some of these pups a new home in the US.  Awww.

I love these three and their Olympic bromance. And how cool would it be if they could sing? How about the first ever boy band made up of all Olympic medal winners? YES! It doesn’t get more American than that.
