I mean, I know we mock surfing as an Olympic sport, but you'd have to be pretty cold-hearted not to be moved by Carissa's performance in shi**y waves, and her joy at winning.

Edit: didn't realize Simpo was her coach. Good guy, wondered what happened to him...

Men's Surfing
Gold: Italo Ferriera
Silver: Kanoa Igarashi
Bronze: Owen Wright

Women's Surfing
Gold: Carissa Moore
Silver: Bianca Buitendag
Bronze: Amuro Tsuzuki
Only thing better would have been Kanoa winning gold, in his semi-home country. I've always liked him and he stepped up when he needed to.
