Sage Kotsenburg gold medal run video has gone viral since his winning the crown. It was the first gold media for United States in Sochi Olympics 2014

The most-talked about Winter Olympics being held in Russia kicked off on Saturday with some trepidation. From day one team vied with each other for scooping medals at the world’s most expensive international event.

Since the curtain raiser event in the background of militant threats, gay propaganda law and other issues, now all eyes are on the game. The US that had grabbed headlines in Canada with its stellar performance was back in the hunt for medals. Its first gold medal came from the slope-style event.

The US has entered into the game hoping to bag at least 40 medals and stay at top. And its hope was carried forward on the snow-covered mountain of the Caucasus Mountains, located a few meters from Sochi where the main Olympic park is by snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg.

Sage, who wowed the audience as well as the judges with some of his great moves, said: “I have no idea what’s actually going on. This is the craziest thing that ever happened.” As other athletes are busy working overtime to grab more medals, some 37,000 security personnel are on the guard to save the game from any attack from separatists. Moreover, Russian president Vladimir Putin’s reputation is at stake. Since the country got the permission to hold the game, he has been monitoring the development. Reports have surfaced that a few days before the gala opening of the game he visited the site and spoke with officials and Russian athletes. It is not only security that his high on agenda but Putin would like his athletes to win more medals and be at the top.
