My, how Gabriel Medina has grown in a year

In just a year, young Gabs Medina has gone from being a hot mess after a close one in Portugal to being absolutely perfect with his champagne-spray strategy in France. Medina had more on the line in 2012 than he did here in 2013, and perhaps the weight of his entire country’s expectations weighed heavy on his shoulders after that loss to Julian in Portugal. Perhaps they were tears of guilt, or fear, maybe grief, or allergies, or…you know what, who gives a damn anymore. Look at this photo! We approve! Medina is redeemed!
