USA medalists' silver jackets have surprises inside

The jackets look pretty sweet on their own, but once athletes look inside, they get a nice surprise.

After winning bronze in the team figure skating event, the US skaters got some sweet jackets too.

When athletes look inside, they find a special message from Nike to remind them of their special moment for eternity. There's another patriotic message under one of the zippers.

Take a look:
