As we all know, the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are a hot topic right now. The US Olympic team has struggled to crack the top-five in medal count and now find themselves in sixth place in gold medals. Well, US Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy has become an American hero for something he did at the Olympics recently.

No, he didn’t win a gold medal or multiple gold medals in his slopestyle of halfpipe competitions, but he became a hero for all the right reasons. What are those reasons, you ask? How about finding all the puppies in Sochi and playing with them all at one.

Yes, I said all the puppies — I’m not sure if Gus realizes just how adorable those puppies are.

Gus does make a good point here. Puppy love is real to puppies. Truer words were never spoken by an Olympian in the history of the competition — or puppy finding.

Okay, Gus, it’s time to find the actual stray puppies of Sochi and then you can win over our hearts for real. Wait, you want another picture of the puppies? Okay, fine.

I bet you if you type in the hashtag “#sochistrays” you will probably find less adorable pictures of dogs in Sochi. Good for you, though, Gus. You just became an American hero for rescuing all the puppies.

Now it’s time to take home the gold.
