Dong Dong Won Gold on the Tramp, But Belarus' Mustachioed Trampoline Artist Won Our Hearts

Dong Dong won gold in the trampoline event today. Dong bounced around on the tramp with reckless abandon until the judges could do nothing but stand up and applaud. It was a brilliant triumph for Dong – or “Dong Lord” as his teammates call him. Dong won the bronze on the tramp in 2008.

Before we forget that trampoline is a sport for four years, let’s take a brief moment to remember Belarus trampoliner, Viachaslau Modzel, and his coach, the guy with that silly haircut. Look at that pair. Amazing. If anyone deserves a Wheaties box, it’s these guys.
