Between the controversy over homosexuality, athletes getting trapped and rather terrible toilets, the Winter Olympics may have gotten some bad press, so here’s a healthy dose of good publicity.

Canadian Alex Bilodeau won gold in the freestyle skiing men’s moguls, but it’s what happened afterward that has people talking.

Bilodeau was caught sharing his gold medal moment with his brother, Frederic, who has cerebral palsy in a heartwarming scene.

Bilodeau gushed when talking about his brother, saying, “He has dreams like you and I but he can’t go after most of those dreams. I have the ability that I can go after those dreams. And out of respect for him, I go after them.”
