Mike Riddle’s girlfriend Bobbie Brooks was very excited after Riddle, a Canadian skier, won the silver medal in the halfpipe competition at the Sochi 2014 Olympics.
“Seriously I’m screaming like a lunatic wearing a garbage bag,” she said via Twitter in response to a photo of her in the crowd.
Riddle earned the medal in the tough event and is considered one of the top halfpipe skiers in the world.

Riddle doesn’t often mention his girlfriend publicly but did wish her a happy birthday about a month ago, saying he wished he could have spent it with her.
Three months ago Riddle and Brooks were able to go to Las Vegas to have some fun, with Riddle sharing several pictures with his fans on Instagram.
Brooks is the principal operator for public relations agency Hot Top Marketing and also does PR for Loudmouth Golf, she says on her Twitter profile.
