Scotty Lago Leaves Vancouver Olympics After Racy Photo Controversy

by at . Comments

Snowboarder Scotty Lago bolted the Winter Olympics after a racy photo surfaced of him inviting girls to kiss his bronze medal. While it hung around his waist.

The third-place finisher in the men's halfpipe snowboarding event voluntarily left after the risque photos of a woman kissing and biting his ... medal surfaced.

The 22-year-old free spirit was snapped with his bronze medal around his waist and the hardware hung over his groin area on a public street late Thursday.

Pretty rad display all around. A second shot showed a woman biting the medal, but this time Scotty Lago held it up by the logo on his Team USA T-shirt.

Hey, a dude's gotta celebrate.

KISS OFF: Snowboarder Scotty Lago is in hot water with the U.S. Olympic Committee and Snowboard Association after inviting the ladies to kiss deez bronze medalz.

In response to the controversy, Lago apologized to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, which required its athletes to attend a special program prior to the games to avoid potential PR nightmares.

That was time well spent! Association President and CEO Bill Marolt said:

"Scotty Lago is a great athlete, but with that talent comes a responsibility of proper conduct, and his involvement in this situation is not acceptable."

"With that said, Scotty realizes that his conduct was inappropriate. He has formally apologized and also made a decision to leave Vancouver today."

Reports say his "voluntary" departure was prompted by an ultimatum from the U.S. Olympic Committee: say you're sorry and go or we kick you out.

No further action against the Seabrook, N.H. native appears likely. In other Olympics news, how about those Lindsey Vonn photos?! Hot damn!
