While the athlete deserves the gold, the fans are trying to find out more details about this young Olympic winner. Getting the gold, especially for Team USA, is a proud moment at the Winter Olympics. Add that the snowboarder is one of the sexiest female athletes on the mountain and viewers are paying attention.

So does Kaitlyn Farrington have a boyfriend? After much research and poking around, the athlete hasn't mentioned any relationships she is involved in. Looking on Twitter and Instagram, the Olympian offers up pictures and details about her family, but nothing too personal and there isn't a relationship status listed on her Team USA page either. Of course after the epic run at Sochi, it's obvious she does love snowboarding. The athlete definitely revealed that she has a relationship with the halfpipe and knows exactly how to handle herself.

Another interesting detail about Team USA’s winner? The snowboarder learned to use her snowboard thanks to her mom. Getting lessons at age 11, it was Farrington’s mom who showed her the path to the Olympics. Of course it was the trick called backside 900 that gave her high scores to win.
