Utah made quite the impact at the 2014 Winter Olympics, with 11 Olympians with Utah ties winning medals in Sochi. Olympians with Utah ties also found ways to make waves away from competition.

Here are some of the memorable Utah athletes and moments from Sochi:

Hansen was the BYU student that danced her way into our hearts in Sochi. She didn’t medal in luge, finishing 10th. However, she won over the Internet by her dancing before events and by pranking America by crying wolf.

Also, she made a fan out of Beyonce, which is gold medal status in awesomeness.
