American long-track speed skater 'Sugar Todd' wins fans with her sporting attitude on Twitter
Sugar Todd competed for America in the women's 500-metre race yesterday at the Winter Olympics, finishing 29th.
Not to be dejected by the low finish, she tweeted that the experience was the "most fun I've ever had!" and stressed how much she loves her sport.
The sweet 23-year old Olympian has been photographed beaming when off the ice and has received Twitter love from around the world.
The 'Milwaukee Journal Sentinel' reports that Sugar is the 23-year-old's real name, having come from a nickname her parents gave her as a baby which "stuck". Her full legal name is Sugar Raeshelle-Faye Chelsea Todd.
THAT WAS THE MOST FUN I'VE EVER HAD. I love the Olympics. I love speedskating.— Sugar Todd (@sugarmotion) February 11, 2014
