Dario Cologna won 2 of Switzerland’s 11 medals at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Cologna won the Cross-Country Men’s Skiathon and Cross-Country Men’s Classic, both of which sound more like local fundraisers than Olympic events. Upon returning to his home country, somebody presented him with a pig named, “Sochi.” I really hope pet pig is something Cologna expressed interest in previously because otherwise that’s a horrible gift.
