Olympic bronze medalist snowboarder, Scotty Lago suddenly left Vancouver this week, after inappropriate photos with his medal surfaced on the Internet.  Yesterday, Lago checked in with all of his fans via Twitter, saying that he “got home this morning” and that he is “keeping my medal in a safe spot for now haha.” Lago left Vancouver on his own accord before the USOC could weigh in on the situation, and Chairman Larry Probst said that his decision was “the correct thing” and “the right decision.”
