But fellow Olympian Gus Kenworthy knows how to make his American teammate feel better: PUPPIES!

The slopestyle skier came across a ridiculously adorable dog during his stay in Russia a few days ago, posting a photo of himself and the canine on Twitter and including with it a caption that reads:

“Oh my glob, look who I just found! #sochistrays.”

Holding four dogs from the same litter in a heap on his lap, Kenworthy then unveiled a second image online and wrote “puppy love is real to puppies” below it:

Man. All these puppies AND Kenworthy gets to hang out with the following hotties…
