Must see: Travis Gerrits is eating his freestyle skiing competitors at the Olympics

Fourth-Place Medal

Travis Gerrits is a 22-year-old freestyle skier from Canada who will be competing in his first Olympics when the Sochi Games get underway next week.

How hungry is Gerrits? He's started to eat his competitors. Just look at the Vine he posted:

His "victim" is fellow freestyle skier Lydia Lassila, a three-time Olympian from Australia, who won the gold in aerials in 2010.

She survived the incident enough to tweet about it, although she could just be firing off 140-character missives while skiing inside around Gerrits. You know, like when Pinocchio was swallowed by that whale.

If a bunch of freestyle skiers go missing in Russia and Travis Gerrits has a toothpick in his mouth every time you see him, then you know something is up.
