scotty lago racy pics

Olympic snowboarder Scotty Lago is packing up his bronze medal and leaving Vancouver after racy pictures surfaced online.

Lago apologized to officials at the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association after TMZ posted photos taken on a public street of a girl on her knees kissing his medal which he had placed over his...ummm...private parts.  In another photo, the same girl is seen biting the medal.

The 22-year-old New Hampshire native is voluntarily heading home before the Olympic closing ceremony.

So what are your thoughts?  Are the pictures scandalous?  Drop a comment below and let us know what you think.

It turns out the whole thing may have been intentionally staged by the girl in the photos - details here.

By way of contrast, Bode Miller, the bad boy of the Torino Games has shed his former image by winning bronze, silver and finally GOLD - check it out here.

Does anyone know the name of the girl?


To be truly honest. No one is to judge on whether this is right or wrong. Who cares. Tiger Woods did it, and it was a big damn deal. Who CARES. You get put on blast in Hollywood so reporters can make a dollar.


Hey, no big deal. The guy won a medal & was happy.


Next up, no more breathing, - it promotes life.


What a world full of hypocrites and non-sense! So regular people can party all they want without remorse, while athletes who work so hard to achieve their goals cannot have fun. Is being a successful athlete a blessing or punishment? Was is good taste? No. But is it immoral? Not really. No one was being forced, nothing was illegal, the setting is well-- a club. If they did it on stage when receiving his medal, then it is a contempt. Technology is gotten to a point where people get confused that athletes too have a private life we should respect.


Ok the girl maybe wanted to see if the medal was real by biting it. As for the other photo, it looks a little inappropriate but the medal is not around his waist. It is hanging, maybe the girl bent down on her own and someone else asked to see his abs. Sometimes pictures are not what they seem. Are there any other angles?


Sex in the city, The Bachelor, etc, etc those are not racy, bunch of hypocrites!
Oh yeah what Scotty did is what's wrong the entire US of A. Give me a break!


A bumch of idiots that spoiled Scotty's moment of joy. And to all those 'morality preachers' : "Go and clean up your life and that of your family first!" don't be holier than the Pope! That piece of metal is just metal IDIOTS, there is nothing sacred about it.


I can't believe how many people are commenting that his behavior is not a big deal. this is exactley what is wrong with america today. this kid should have shown some respect to his sport and the olympics.


It makes me sad that Scotty Lago had/volunteered to go home because of this. Yes, for some little kids this might be inappropriate, but Scotty is not a little kid and he was celebrating being one of the best snowboarders in the world. Who wouldn't?
