The two put in some Olympics training of their own to honor the many athletes from their home state of Colorado competing in Pyeongchang.
They both replied “curling” when asked what Olympic sport they would want to compete in, and then had at it in a Russell Senate Office Building hallway.
Since Colorado has the most #WinterOlympics athletes of any state, @SenBennetCO and I decided to have our very own bipartisan Senate-style Olympics. But it's a good thing the pros at @usacurl are representing us in #PyeongChang2018. pic.twitter.com/UAkj61yf5m— Cory Gardner (@SenCoryGardner) February 14, 2018
Their version of curling involved Gardner pushing a scooter and Bennet using a broom to sweep it toward the target they set up with tape. Then they switched positions.
And they weren’t too bad at it.
To celebrate, the senators attempted a high five but missed and caught each other’s arms.
“We’re proud of you, thanks for being great representatives of Colorado and our country,” Gardner said to conclude with a message to Olympians.
Bennet added, “We’re all looking up to you, and we can’t wait to share your victories when you come home.”
