Hand the boy his medal (and a kleenex)

Congratulations to Ian Thorpe for winning the Olympic gold in the 200 Freestyle. The olive branch crown was lovely on his still-wet locks, however, the booger/snot on his right cheek wasn't as appealing. Hat tip to my dearest R for "having the observation skills necessary to locate said booger/snot." Thanks, dear, for making the medal ceremony more bearable for us devoted patriotic American fans. (I will post a close up shot as soon as I can find one).

Michael Phelps adds to his medals by swimming a personal best and earning a bronze. We still love ya, Michael :)

How have your fifteen minutes of fame with a booger. Well it seems humility might win its own medal. :)

He has won other events and is known well. If he has any character at all he will get over it. It might be good for his humility.
