This shirtless, pink tutu-wearing streaker won the Olympics

Now that they’re almost over, we can admit it: The Winter Olympics are – *whispers* – kind of boring.

It’s not that they’re uneventful. It’s not that the athletes aren’t incredible, powerful, graceful, sometimes heroic. It’s not that the races aren’t dramatic. It’s just that most of them, for the uninitiated viewer, are repetitive and monotonous compared to other sports.

But you know what’s not monotonous? THIS GUY:

Yep, that’s the glorious sight to which spectators at the Olympic speed skating track were treated on Friday. And that’s not the only picture we have of our latest Olympic hero:
