even more proof that bronze is the new gold

I just finished watching yesterday's men's team sprint finals in track cycling, in which Britain took gold, France took silver, and Germany took bronze. Really all the winners were awesome. I just love watching teams congratulate and hug each other after the meet/match is over. And watching them hug their loved ones in the stands was wonderful. But once again the bronze medalists stole my heart when one of the German cyclists, after finishing the race, started crying in joy because his team had won bronze.

What can I say? I just love seeing people thrilled and ecstatic over bronze medal wins. :)

Also, on a much more superficial note: Does the German team not have the greatest helmets ever?

I submit to you that they do.
