Stand By Your Olympic Legends...
As Mr SwissToni kindly pointed out, the big thumb in the previous post was situated in the Olympic Park in Seoul. Seoul hosted the greatest show on earth in 1988, and is largely remembered for an astonishing run by Ben Johnson in the men’s 100 metres final, while drugged up to his eyeballs on steroids.
It is compulsory when visiting any Olympic city to make a trip to the stadium, and Swiss and girlfriend Caitlin took the time out to take a look around the Olympic Museum. Here they managed to pay homage to two of the greatest Olympian legends of all time, in a Stand By Your Statue stylee, of course! Above, Swiss emulates the mighty American swimmer Mark Spitz, winner of seven gold medals in the 1972 games, while, below, Caitlin throws some graceful moves in imitating the great Russian gymnast Nadia Comaneci. Neither was on steroids at the time.
All this talk of Olympic legends and I haven't mentioned this man once!
