U.S. medal winner Scotty Lago left the Olympics in disgrace after steamy party pictures hit the Internet.
The 22-year-old bronze medal winner for snowboarding was photographed in suggestive poses with his medal and an unidentified woman.
The photo was taken in a Vancouver nightclub during a party celebrating teammate Shaun White's gold medal victory.
Lago voluntarily left the Olympic Village after being told he could be ordered out. He then flew back to his home in Seabrook, New Hampshire.
He joked about the incident on his Twitter page: "Got home this morning to all my homies. Such a good Olympic experience. Keeping my medal in a safe spot for now ha ha."
