Lago volunteers to leave Olympics after risqué photos pop up on Web

American halfpipe bronze medal winner Scotty Lago volunteered to leave the Olympics on Friday after a photo of a woman kneeling below his waist to kiss his medal surfaced on the Internet.

Lago, who was awarded his bronze medal Thursday night, was at a party, wearing a Team USA T-shirt when somebody snapped a photo of a woman kneeling below Lago’s waist to kiss his medal. That picture, and another showing him sticking the medal in the woman’s mouth while teammate Greg Bretz looks on, appeared Friday on the TMZ Web site.

“Scotty Lago is a great athlete, but with that comes a responsibility of proper conduct, and his involvement in this situation is not acceptable,” U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO Bill Marolt said in an e-mail. “Scotty realizes his conduct was inappropriate. He has formally apologized and also made a decision to leave Vancouver today.”

Well done, Scotty. You became the first Olympian to ever volunteer to leave the games early after taking a picture with a girl kissing your medal near your junk.

Momma must be so proud.
