Colorado Olympian Overslept, Lost His Coat, Still Won Gold

Colorado's Red Gerard became the youngest American man to win gold at the Olympics in 90 years at just 17-years-old this last weekend, but the night/morning before were a little "chaotic." 

After a Netflix binge of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” late the night before that caused him to miss his 6 a.m. alarm, he also lost his coat, which is sort of important when snowboarding. 

Luckily his teammate/roommate woke him up in the nick of time, and let him borrow a coat. 

Later in the day Gerard became the Team USA’s first gold medal winner of the Pyeongchang Olympics.
