Canadian cyclist Kelsey Mitchell forgot to remove all medal (you’ll see what I did there after you watch the video) objects from her person before passing through the metal detector on her way home from the Tokyo Olympics.
I’ll let you see what happens…
“Oh woops! Sorry, I forgot to remove my insanely sick gold medal draped around my neck!” , is something that would be extremely baller to be able to do. Well played Kelsey on hamming it up and taking pride in that gold medal.
I think I would just wear that gold medal around my neck for a solid year just to show it off. I mean what do you have to lose? Nobody is going to think you’re lame for casually wearing an Olympic Gold Medal in public. They might want to take a picture with you, but you’ll probably end up getting free coffee, meals, and drinks as long as you’re wearing it.
