U.S. Olympian Gus Kenworthy Is Reunited With His Sochi Dogs On Today Show! Find Out Why This Story Just Got Even More Bittersweet HERE

Filed under: Sad SadHealthOlympicsAdoptionPuppyDogRescue

Remember when Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy rescued four Sochi puppies and their momma?

We were so excited that several strays stuck in Russia were going to get out and find good homes in the good ol' U.S. of A.!

Sadly, in the most heartbreaking news we've ever heard, two of the puppies have died. Noooo! Say it isn't so!

Gus' friend Robin Macdonald had stayed behind in Sochi to make sure the pups would get home safe, but has explained that the deceased pups died after Russian authorities "refused to let [Macdonald] bring [them] to get treatment."

The two were on the Today show this morning with Matt Lauer and Gus was finally reunited with the remaining pups, including their precious momma.

Gus is gonna keep two of the pups, another one will go to his brother and his fiancé and the momma dog will be adopted by Gus's mom.

Watch the bittersweet reunion and their explanation of why the process took so long to bring them home (above).

And, say goodbye to one of the pups, in which Robin posted a pic and sweet message (below).

Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games Ad Will Give You Chills!

Filed under: ZportzInspirationParalympics

Even though the Sochi 2014 Winter Games are over, that doesn't mean sports there have completely shut down…

Because this Friday marks the beginning of the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games!

The Paralympics are so amazing and so inspiring because it's not just athletes competing to win gold.

The Games are about people who have overcome disabilities to compete at an Olympic level.

That's why this Samsung Paralympic commercial hits so hard.

It shows how these athletes are no different than anyone else, except they strive to be the BEST! As all Olympians do!

Check out the video (above) to see this inspiring commercial!

The Sochi Closing Ceremony Ring Joke Was Flawless! Watch Them Poke Fun At Themselves Over The Opening Fiasco!

Filed under: Silly!ZportzOlympicsGIFs

sochi closing ceremony olympic rings joke

We didn't expect this!!

When we sat down to watch the Sochi Olympic Closing Ceremony, we figured we'd get the usual amount of spectacle on-par with the Opening Ceremony — we might've even been waiting for a mistake or two, but assumed there would be no way they'd let that happen.

As it turns out… they DID let it happen! On purpose!

At one point during the closing ceremony, the performers formed the Olympic rings and one of the them didn't open! It was just like the Opening ceremony, except this time Russia did it on purpose!

Amazing!

The nod to their original mistake was a great humanizing way to play with the world's expectations, and it was everything!

Despite all the water/stray dog/hotel issues, we'd say Sochi's Olympics went off better than everyone thought they would!

That still doesn't change how they treat the LGBT community, though.
