Send love to U.S. skier Gus Kenworthy for rescuing stray puppies in Sochi

A day before making his Olympic debut, 22-year-old freeskier Gus Kenworthy took a break to play with some stray puppies he found in host city Sochi, Russia. 

"Oh my glob, look who I just found! :) ‪#sochistrays" he Tweeted from his verified account on Wednesday,February 12.

He posted pictures of himself with the puppies on Twitter and Facebook, and later said, 

"Also, for the people wondering, I've lined up kennels 4 the pups & made vaccination appointments. 

Doing all I can to bring them home w/ me!"

Kenworthy was born in Great Britain but raised in Colorado. 

He won silver on January, 13 in the slopestyle event in Sochi for Team USA, 

but he's already captured gold in the hearts of many of his animal-loving fans.

He is my gold one!!Long live the Gus!
