Olympic cross-country skier Sadie Bjornsen from Winthrop, Wash., hates the cold.

Yes. A Winter Olympian doesn't like winter weather.

But she says that's why she ended up doing cross country over other skiing events.

"I just got so tired of being freezing cold riding the chairlifts," Bjornsen told NBC. "And so it occurred to me, 'Why wouldn't I just ski up this hill? So that's where it all came from. That's why I cross-country ski because it's your best way to stay warm in the winter."
