A Netflix binge could’ve stopped Red Gerard from winning at the Winter Olympics
February 13, 2018
In South Korea, a 17-year-old American snowboarder Red Gerard won an Olympic gold medal for the ‘Slope Style’ category at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang but the win comes after he binged on Netflix the night before and missed his alarms before the competition. Red stayed up all night and watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine, when his alarm went off the next morning he literally had to be dragged out of bed by his teammate only to realise he had forgotten his jacket halfway there. He still bagged the gold medal though and seems to be a bit in awe of it. He is the youngest American man to win a gold medal in 90 years!
