Voodoo Olympic Doughnut

SOCHI, Olympics – Winning a bronze medal has given Nick Goepper some amazing accolades. Well, at least from the world of sugary breakfast treats.

Goepper and his slopestyle teammates already landed on their own limited edition Corn Flakes box. Now, the 19-year-old Indiana native has been honored … with his own gigantic doughnut.

The mad geniuses at Voodoo Doughnuts created this elaborate pastry and stuck a sign in it, celebrating his medal at the Sochi Games.

Goepper got their attention when he revealed he was a fan of the outrageous donut creations on NBC. His favorite? Maple bar with bacon.

Goepper acknowledged the honor on Twitter:

@NBCOlympics @VoodooDoughnut THANKS for the custom donut!! I'll be sure to stop by next time I'm in P-Town pic.twitter.com/hO1MYA9fbp

As the saying goes: “To the victor goes the spoils … to the third place finisher goes the elephantine fried dough creation.”

Memo to Nick: Dude, if this doesn’t impress Taylor Swift, nothing will.
