Taylor Swift Wishes Sochi Olympians Good Luck — Especially Freestyle Skier Torin Yater-Wallace (VIDEO)
Competing in the Olympics? That’s enough of an accomplishment to be considered the highlight of your life. Getting a video from Taylor Swift wishing you good luck as you compete in the Olympics? Life = complete.
But that’s exactly what happened for Torin Yater-Wallace, an Olympic freestyle skier who’s mentioned in the past how hard he fanboys for Taylor — and now, his dedication to the 24-year-old singer is paying off.
Taylor recorded a video wishing everyone on Team USA well, with a special message included for Torin. “Hey, it’s Taylor! I just wanted to say good luck to everybody going to Sochi,” Taylor said. “I wanted to wish all the winter athletes good luck, and Torin — thanks for listening to my music while you practice. That’s amazing.”
Torin, who was filmed after he watched the video, had the best reaction ever — he was totally blushing. “Whoa,” he said. “She said my name.” Too adorable!
He even has a date all planned out for Taylor to enjoy, should that fantasy ever come true. “We’d go to the Hickory House in Aspen and get some barbecue ribs and maybe go hot tubbing at the Ritz Carlton,” Torin told Us Weekly. “And then she can come over and we can see what happens after that.”
