Thus far, all attempts are for not. Perhaps she’s just doesn’t have her phone on the mountain?

“I’ve been trying my hardest to get here to tweet me back, like me back, on social media. She hasn’t quite done that yet. Unfortunately, but we gotta keep on pushing hard,” Noah Gragson stated on February 22nd via an interview with Dave Moody on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.

“You gotta stay patient. Some things in life, you gotta work hard for. This is one of those things. I’m going to keep up and be persistent.”

There’s a 14 year age gap between these two athletes. Was that a concern?

“No. No. That’s just a number in my opinion. I’m 19 and a half. I feel like a little kid saying that. But, hopefully it will make my chances a little bit better.”

More recently, Noah Gragson provided a status update on the chase for a chance.

Feb 24th: “You know, she must have bad wifi or something at PF Changs [Pyeongchang]. So, she hasn’t gotten back to me. But, I think it’s just bad wifi,” Gragson told Fox Sports.

Now, the dreams have been crushed. But, he gave it hell out there.

Guy eyes girl. Girl doesn’t acknowledge guy. The end.
