Bronze medalist Scott Lago apologized to U.S. officials and volunteered to leave the Olympic Games after racy pictures of him, his medal and a female fan showed up on the Internet, a spokesman for the U.S. ski and snowboard team confirmed Saturday.
Lago, from Seabrook, New Hampshire, finished third in Wednesday night's snowboard halfpipe event. It was his first trip to the Olympics.
On Friday morning, the gossip Web site TMZ.com published two pictures of Lago. In one, the unidentified fan is kissing the medal while it hangs just below the waistline of Lago's pants. In the second, she is biting down on the medal, which is around Lago's neck, as teammate Greg Bretz looks on. It is unclear when the photos were taken.
U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO Bill Marolt said Lago had apologized to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. snowboard federation, and left Canada.
"Scotty Lago is a great athlete, but with that comes a responsibility of proper conduct and his involvement in this situation is not acceptable," Marolt said in a written statement.
"Scotty realizes his conduct was inappropriate. He has formally apologized and also made a decision to leave Vancouver today."
He was not entered to compete in any remaining events. Lago could not be reached for comment Saturday.
