Think that’s it? No! Kim also tweeted she was hangry that she hasn’t finished her sandwich during the breakfast.

Red Gerard, US

The 17-year-old Red Gerard overslept after a late night of watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Despite that morning incident, Gerard still won a gold medal, the first for a U.S. team at this year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Gerard is the youngest American man to win a gold medal in 90 years! That’s probably why he said “holy f*ck!” on NBC’s live feed when the winners were announced.

Unfortunately, the video of NBC live stream was deleted, but we’ll always remember that funny moment.

“I did not believe it when I turned and there was no one there. I just had to keep pushing forward until the final.” Kruger stated.

He crossed the final line and won a gold medal for his country.
