Gus Kenworthy has had a rough Olympic games to say the least, and even though he didn’t get the gold, he has a nice black and blue to remind him of his time in PyeongChang.
The freestyle skier revealed the gigantic bruise Tuesday morning, which he earned during a practice run before competing in the men’s slope style. The silver medalist said the medical crew drained 140 ccs of blood from a hematoma just two days before his competition. He also broke his thumb in a separate accident.
While showing the bruise, Kenworthy chuckled, “A peach hasn’t been this destroyed since Timothée Chalamet in Call Me by Your Name.” Look it up if you don’t know.
Despite the injuries, Kenworthy’s Winter Games have been pretty great: he got a shout out from Britney Spears and also shared a kiss with his boyfriend on live television.
Didn't realize this moment was being filmed yesterday but I'm so happy that it was. My childhood self would never have dreamed of seeing a gay kiss on TV at the Olympics but for the first time ever a kid watching at home CAN! Love is love is love. pic.twitter.com/8t0zHjgDg8
