Proud Parents Watching Their Son Win Olympic Gold Has Twitter Tearing Up

The Winter Olympics are in full swing in PyeongChang, South Korea. On Monday night, South Korean time, Mikael Kingsbury, a 24-year-old member of Canada's freestyle skiing team, won gold in the men's moguls event. He is considered by many to be one of the most accomplished skiers of this generation. He is the record holder for World Cup moguls and freestyle wins. He skied in the 2012 Olympics, earning silver, but this was his first gold.

Kingsbury's parents were on hand to see it. CBC reporter Devin Heroux was standing next to them:

And then his parents were captured on tape the moment that their son won gold:

Kingsbury's mother said to Devin Heroux in the moments right after:

Fans got a little emotional...

And some people related to these parents... hard:

Nick Ziccardi, a reporter for NBC, regaled us with this fun fact:

For those who don't read French, that means "I am going to win."

Which elicited quite a response:

And finally, we heard from Kingsbury, who said:

Congratulations! You're an inspiration to us all.
