Downhill skier Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway has a confession to make — he swiped some yogurt.

Quite a bit, actually. And no, he doesn't feel any remorse.

After days of lamenting about not having the breakfast treat up in the mountains, Svindal took matters into his own hands when he was in Sochi's coastal cluster for the opening ceremonies, where he was a flag bearer for his nation.

While visiting the coastal village, he noticed a stash of yogurt and, well, indulged.

"They have way more food. So I stole some from there," said Svindal, who finished fourth in Sunday's downhill race, 0.29 seconds behind winner Matthias Mayer of Austria.
