Luger Tucker West's father, Brett, seems like a pretty cool dad. Not only did he build an 800-foot luge track in the family's backyard so Tucker could train, but he went on the Today Show this past week and decided to play the role of wingman, announcing to the whole world that his 18-year-old son is single and on the market.

"I just want to say to all the young ladies out there, Tucker is very single," Mr. West said, "and he's a little shy, so you'll have to reach out to him."

Brett West, you are officially in the running for Dad of the Year. As for Tucker, he finished 22nd overall in the luge run, nine spots behind top American luger Christopher Mazdzer.
