Every four years, athletes across the world gather together to show their athletic prowess and bring the gold to return to their countries. But what really excites me is the constant unending stream of drama and controversy because, come on, what do you expect when you get the best of the best all under one roof? The London 2012 Olympics have seen drug test failures, racist tweets, and most hilariously, Olympians breaking their metals.
Granted, Brazil's Felipe Kitadai's metal was not gold but bronze. Vowing to never let his metal out of his sight, the Brazilian Olympian broke and dented his metal white Kitadai was taking a shower with it.
The International Olympic committee decided that although they have no obligation to replace broken metals, they would do it anyways.
Fun fact: the metal in Kitadai's metal is valued at less than $5. Fun Fact #2: if you love something, don't shower with it.
