Good Guy Shaun White is the best.
Here's more on the scene from USA TODAY Sports' Lindsay H. Jones:
Ten-year-old Ben Hughes of St. Louis and Katie Lyle, a 19-year-old from Pensacola, are attending the Sochi Games on a Make a Wish trip. Both love White and it was their dream to merely watch him compete. Neither thought their trip would include a meeting.
"Oh my God, oh my God, I love him," Lyle said. "He’s even cuter in person."
Lyle watched White win gold at the Vancouver Games in 2010 while undergoing chemotherapy at a Florida childrens hospital. She’s been cancer-free for three and a half years.
Unfortunately for White, the rest of his Tuesday didn't go as he'd hoped.
