<p>jonnymoseley: So much respect for @mrdavidwise for having the head to power through two premature binding releases and lay down his best. Balancing in a family at the same time and defending a #gold. Truly remarkable. Congratulations. Thank you for an inspiring day. And thank you for signing my son’s helmet. #mysigisnogood #bestofus #winterolympics @nbcolympics<br> (Photo via Instagram/jonnymoseley) </p>

<p>The last 24 hours have been unbelievable! No, seriously. I still don’t believe it happened. There are so many people who are a part of this first ever gold medal for our team and I can’t thank them all the way I’d like to…but you know who you are. Those of you who put your lives on hold to coach us, wax for us, train grueling sessions alongside of us and push us through the tough times as well as celebrate the good times. To the ones up cheering at 3am in your pajamas to the ones cheering on the side of the race course. To all of you who believed in us from the start and cheered us through every small victory and picked us up from every fall. Thank you, this medal belongs to you as much as it does to me. ❤️<br>(Photo via Instagram/essiediggins) </p>
