ZHANGJIAKOU, China (AP) — It seems appropriate to ask this question on Valentine’s Day: What does ski superstar Gu Ailing like best?

In a brief interview after Monday’s halfpipe practice, the 18-year-old, who is competing at Stanford for her mother’s home country of China, pondered the question and came up with the list.

(She said she didn’t include people.)

“I would say I got a gold pin from a volunteer. It’s a Beijing 2022 gold pin with rhinestones all around. It’s very rare. And my gold medal, which is probably my most precious property. My cats. I love them so much. Truffle oil. I love skiing, racing, and fresh air.”

Gu has the chance to win three gold medals at the Beijing Olympics. On Tuesday, she finished second in the slope finale.
