Last week, I featured the U.S. Men's Gymnastic's team and, to balance things out, I thought I would feature the UK's version of our Danell Leyva....Louis Smith.
Four years ago, at the Beijing Olympics, Smith was Britain's first Olympic gymnast to bring home a medal in 80 years. This year, his team brought home the bronze medal...the first time a British team has done that in over a century.
Of course, it would be unpatriotic to root for him exclusively, so I will continue to cheer for our Danell, who appears, here, to be iPhone chatting with Louis Smith.
I do enjoy it when teams make an effort to get along and send naked pictures to each other.
Danell seems to have captured America's heart and other regions in more ways than one. He just seems to have it all.
A supportive father who obviously loves him to death.
A magical old good luck blanket that has over 10,000 Twitter followers....
And, of course....he can do that.
Lucky bendy bastard.
