Sage Kotsenburg bacon medal

After USA’s Sage Kotsenburg won the first gold medal at the Sochi Winter Olympics in the slopestyle snowboard, he instantly became an internet celebrity.  Whether it was for his ultra-bro Instagram or his entertaining Twitter account, Kotsenburg became an American icon.

Kotsenburg tweeted this message after winning his gold medal, and shortly thereafter, the Pennsylvania-based Godshall’s Meats created the edible bacon medal.
