For those who have been tuning in to the coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, you'll be quite familiar with Scotty James.

He's the snowboarder who just picked up a bronze medal in the epic halfpipe finals, after walking into the games as Australia's official opening ceremony flag-bearer in Pyeongchang.

This is the third Olympics for the Victorian-born sports star, who made his debut as a 15-year-old in Vancouver 2010, before going on to compete in Sochi, Russia in 2014.

But while his skill on the field is undeniable, we can’t help but note that he bears an uncanny resemblance to one of our favourite on-screen crushes.

For those in the dark, Cedric Diggory, played by Robert Pattinson, shot to fame after appearing in Harry Potter as a popular Hufflepuff Seeker and competitor in the Triwizard Tournament.

Like Cedric, Scotty is a fierce contender - but that’s not all they share in common.

Both boys have remarkably similar features: the tousled brown hair, rosy cheeks, striking blue eyes, brooding stance.

We’re officially seeing double. What do you think?
