How far would you ski to meet an Olympic medalist?

A freshman at University of Pittsburgh, who is originally from Upper Moreland Township, is willing to travel 500 miles to meet Nick Goepper, the slopestyle skier who won bronze in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

"My wall at home is covered in Olympic athletes," said 18-year-old Meaghan Farley, who is studying German and global management.

Farley says she enjoys the Winter Games more than the Summer Olympics because the sports are more "extreme."

Farley, who has only skied a few times in her life, says she needed to do something to stand out from the thousands of girls trying to win a date with Goepper.

So she created her own version of The Proclaimers' hit song, I'm Gonna Be, and shot a music video that includes her singing "I'm gonna be the girl who skis right next to you...I know I'm gonna be/ I'm gonna be the one who's on a date with you."

The 19-year-old Olympian took to social media on Feb. 14 in search of his Valentine.


The tweet garnered more than 2,000 favorites and a slew of responses

The athlete has yet to choose who will win the "dream date."

But Farley has a chance. After a friend of hers tweeted a link to her video to Goepper, he replied "epic!"
