When Serena Williams was on the podium to accept her Gold, a huge gust of wind blew through and swept Old Glory off it's place above, it went fluttering to the ground. There was a clattering through the crowd. Did someone intentionally fasten it poorly?Would this be regarded as some kind of insult? Serena just laughed.
"It was probably flying to come hug me, because the flag was so happy. It was fluttering toward me, trying to wrap its fabric around me."
Erik Barrondo won the first Medal ever for Guatemala, with a Silver in the racewalk (I'll reserve making jokes about racewalk in honor of the situation). “It is well known that Guatemala has problems with guns and knives. I hope that this medal inspires the kids at home to put down guns and knives and pick up a pair of trainers instead. If they do that, I will be the happiest guy in the world.”
When Britain's resident superhero Jessica Ennis busted through her final feat to win Gold in the heptathlon, the crowd absolutely erupted. 80,000 strong, they broke out into an impromptu rendition of All You Need Is Love.
Paul McCartney joined in.
