There’s a gold medal around Sage Kotsenburg’s neck after the American snowboarder dominated the Snowboard Slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, but this proud Olympian now has a new bid: a medal of bacon.
Earlier this week, after winning the first gold medal for the U.S. team, Kotsenburg took to Twitter to share his humorous request:
Ahh I wish the Sochi medals were made out of bacon thoooo..!!

Several news agencies have obliged with the help of photo editing, such as the picture provided by USA TODAY Sports to the right.
The bacon-lover didn’t have to wait long for his savory treat – Kotsenburg later tweeted a picture of his breakfast of champions, which included several slices of bacon.
