Overjoyed: Bronze excitement
The picture “stars” Team USA rower Henrik Rummel receiving his bronze medal for the (cough) coxless four at the weekend, sporting what we can politely call a bulge in his gentleman’s area.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7oHzeYWt9U%5D
The picture and video has been the talk of the internet, causing Rummel himself to go online and defend himself (and big himself up at the same time).
Posting on Reddit under the username of “Rummelator”, he explained: “This is me and I swear it’s not erect!
“I don’t know why it ended up in that position but there you go.”
