Sage Kotsenburg was one of the first Olympians to win gold at Sochi, and he's now back in America, greeting friends and fans alike around the country.

Some of those fans happen to work at Godshall Meats, who took up Kotsenburg's request for a medal made of bacon. Another of those fans happens to be Conan O'Brien. On Thursday night, Conan at last presented Sage with his bacon medal:

Ah, but Sage didn't come emptyhanded. Indeed, he inducted Conan into the brotherhood of the 'boarders:

You're going to see a flood of Olympians hitting the late-night circuit over the next week or so. We'll see who's able to top the bacon-and-beanie performance of Mr. Kotsenburg.
