U.S. Olympic snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg received a special gift when he recently appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show.
One of the more popular athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympians, Kotsenburg won the first-ever Olympic gold medal in men’s snowboard slopestyle. After winning, he tweeted out feelings of disappointment over what the medal was made of.
Ahh I wish the Sochi medals were made out of bacon thoooo..!!—
