Person of Interest:
Austria's Matthias Mayer, Olympic Gold Medal winner in downhill skiing. He’s the 7th Austrian to win this Olympic event, making him an instant celebrity. Think former Michigan quarterback and three time Super Bowl Champ Tom Brady celebrity. When Matthias is old, he will be Joe Namath popular, like those six Austrian champs before him. His dad, Helmut Mayer, won the Silver Medal in the 1988 Olympics in Calgary.

He tucks his legs like that because of his hugh cojones.
