What is it about Canadian women that makes them seem so down-to-earth and accessible? Like you could chat them up in a pub and it’d be relaxing and fun? Ms. Gough here just barely missed getting a medal in a tough match.
This Latvian cutie is only 18 years old and already representing her country at Sochi. The Luge is brutal – she placed 18th in women’s singles – and total, she only had a 4.9 second time differential off from Natalie Geisenberger, the gold medalist!
Sochi is this beautiful Canadian’s Olympic debut! We love that she’s a hard working college student at the University of Calgary who also loves biking and the great outdoors. Watch the video below after the gallery to hear her speak – we can definitely hear the Canadian accent and Canada pride!
We have to say: we certainly found this video very entertaining. If you watch closely, you’ll see some of our favorite curlers, including Kaitlyn Lawes, Jennifer Jones and fan favorite Anna Sidorova screaming their hearts out. Who would have thought curling was such an intense sport? If you’re at work, you probably want to put some headphones on when you listen to this … and you probably want to watch somewhere alone to contain your laughing.
Now, if you don’t mind, we’ll be busy trying to figure out how to set this as our ringtones.
She’s only 18 and already representing the United States as a figure skater at Sochi. We love that she’s teaching people about core strength. This Olympic hottie even has Taylor Swift rooting for her!
