We love watching the races and the medal ceremonies, of course, but there’s something about that teammate-to-teammate high-five that sends shivers down our spines and puts an immediate smile on our faces.
In case you missed these awesome interactions, we’ve compiled some of the happiest high-fives captured during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics:
