U.S. Gold Medalist Sage Kotsenburg Scores Plane Ticket Home From Stranger


U.S. Olympian Sage Kotsenburg has been living the good life since taking home gold in snowboard slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics last week. But after countless media appearances in both Sochi and New York — including a spot on “Good Morning America” — the 20-year-old just wanted to go home.

A stranger apparently made that happen Friday night, as Kotsenburg tweeted that a man named Gregory Keller had given up his seat on a flight to Utah so the snowboarder could head home to see his family.

The week of media bombardment hasn’t dampened Kotsenburg’s excitement, though. He even stopped to take a selfie with the plane’s pilot. What a guy.
