Olympic Skier Ryan Cochran-Siegle’s Mom Congratulates Her Son 50 Years After Her Own Win

Prepare to feel very good about this family and slightly bad about your own. Olympic skier Ryan Cochran-Siegle just took home silver in the men’s super-G alpine event (it’s like a downhill race) in Beijing and appeared on to talk about his big win. (You can see the video there.) During the appearance he got a surprise call from his mom, Barbara Ann Cochran, who knows a thing or two about Olympic skiing: She won gold in the women’s slalom in Sapporo, Japan, in 1972.

“Congratulations, I’m just so proud Ryan, so proud of you,” said Cochran, almost 50 years to the day after her own moment on the podium. Per Today, Cochran’s three siblings are also winter Olympians, as is Ryan’s cousin Jimmy Cochran, another skier. So they’re a pretty athletic family, and yours is not. Sorry!
