LOOK: Gus Kenworthy got a tweet from Britney Spears urging him to 'gimme more'

Yes, going to the Olympics is an incredible achievement, blah, blah, blah. But this is Gus Kenworthy's second appearance in the Winter Games. It's old-hat. Know what isn't? Waking up in Pyeongchang to a tweet from Britney Spears herself making a pun of her own damn song to encourage him. That's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and no one can ever take that away from Kenworthy.

This is why time zones are awesome. Kenworthy had no idea that this was coming. He just woke up preparing to make the men's slopestyle final out of qualifying. Next thing you know, you're going through your morning ritual of scrolling through Twitter and getting angry at everyone trying @ you, and you've got Britney Spears telling you: "Gimme, gimme more on the slopes today!" This is why people train. This is why Olympians are "The Best of U.S."

Kenworthy, of course, was measured and composed in replying..

Kenworthy isn't going to be running at 100 percent. He broke his thumb and had blood drained from his hip. In spite of this, his day is going to be absolutely packed.

Now, Kenworthy is heading out to make Britney proud and bring home a gold medal. Even though "#ItsGusBitch" isn't super catchy, it doesn't have to be. It came from Britney herself.
