Golden 'Grams: Alex Beaulieu-Marchand is the ultimate wingman
And bobsleigh pilot Christopher Spring has a golden reaction to a teammate's bronze medal

Alex Beaulieu-Marchand showed his sister some brotherly love on national TV and Christopher Spring had a patriotic blooper on camera at Canada House.
Here's what Canadians were double-tapping on our feed today:
Canada's newest bronze medallist, Alex Beaulieu-Marchand (ABM), made headlines, may have caused his sister to face-palm after his qualifying men's slopestyle run. It wasn't the run itself, but what he said with cameras rolling.
"Hey, my sister's looking for a boyfriend, anyone out there?"
Is ABM the best brother, or the worst brother after that comment?
And his sister Sophie?
Well, she told CBC Sports via Instagram, "For him to even think about saying that after landing his run is hilarious! What an ultimate wingman! I think it's brotherly love at its finest! Let's see if it works."
Good luck in love Sophie, let us know how it goes.
Judging by her reaction to his bronze medal win, we don't think she was too upset by the comment.
Great reaction or greatest reaction?
Speaking of reactions, check out this solid one from Canada's bobsleigh athlete Christopher Spring.
CBC's Craig McMorris was at Canada House interviewing halfpipe star Mercedes Nicoll when they were surprised by a loud howl behind them. Spring was so stoked for fellow slider Alex Gough winning bronze, that he just couldn't contain himself.
