So this guy volunteers at the Olympics. He figures maybe he’ll get to see some amazing athletes doing athletic things. And then the fastest man alive gives him a fist bump.
Look how happy he is.
Omfg im crying thats so cute
This reminded me how much I loved that Stanley on The Office had a Usain Bolt costume. Also it’s hard to concentrate on the volunteers beaming face when Bolt’s super ripped arms are front and center. Ticket to the gun show, please.
Let’s start off with the obvious.
Ryan Lochte adjusting himself (Many, many thanks to the BBC feed):
Men’s relay / Phelps last gold:
Swimmers in general:
The qt men’s gymnasts on the medals podium:
Le Clos being adorable:
Le Clos’ dad being beautiful:
The three independent athletes with no country:
McKayla being a badass:
Kobe signing Tunisian basketball player’s (Mohamed Hadidane) sneaker after USA kicked his butt:
This display of love and happiness:
And finally, my beloved Spice Girls:
Nice stroll down memory lane.
The Hunger Games meets Olympic Gymnastics. Everything I ever wanted and more. (Also I love how the maker of this video acknowledges that McKayla would obviously find a way to Amanar vault everyone to death if she were chosen as tribute, but Aly Raisman had more Olympic footage so it was easier to make this video with her in the Katniss role.)
Turkey’s Asli Cakir Alptekin won the women’s Olympic 1500m on Friday in 4min 10.23sec. Another Turk, Gamze Bulut, took silver in 4:10.40 (via)
Congratulations to both Aslı Çakır Alptekin & Gamze Bulut.
There were cheering and clapping sounds echoing in the house.
This is beautiful.
This really shows the true spirit of the Olympic games. Turkish runner Merve Aydin injured herself during an 800m heat, but still carried on a whole lap visibly in excruciating pain before limping over the finish line and falling to the floor in tears to the cheers of 80,000 fans in the Olympic stadium. Respect
Because this was the greatest vault of all time and everyone needs to reblog this.
i can’t believe she didn’t get a perfect score
Sometimes with these scores you just wanna go up to the judges and be like:
America, fuck yeah.
