Sochi hotel tells reporter: Don't let dangerous water touch your face

CHICAGO -- If there's a gold medal for tweeting, we have a winner.

When Stacy St. Clair arrived in Sochi to cover the Winter Olympics for the Chicago Tribune, she probably wasn't expecting to tweet this. And she definitely wasn't expecting this tweet to go viral. Currently at nearly 1,200 retweets, 250 favorites and counting, this tweet has been featured on Deadspin, Sports Illustrated, CNN -- even Canada.com.

Not bad, eh?

And St. Clair's fame extends offline too. In an email exchange earlier from a bus traveling through Russian mountains, she wrote that a Swedish gentleman recognized her and asked if she was "the dangerous face water woman."

Sounds like a business card update is in order.
