American wreslter Jordan Burroughs and Iranian wrestler Sadegh Goudarszi on the medal stand Friday night, after Burrroughs beat Goudarszi to win the Gold Medal in the 74kg Wrestling division:
I hope the picture would have been the same had the finish been reversed. The picture illustrates the very best component of the Olympics: the Oympic Peace. I wish the nationalistic medal count race didn’t corrupt it.
Nice. Hope it ends up being a preview of the future and not bitterly ironic.
@Dave Schuler: I suspect. @michael reynolds: Indeed.
Oh… and can I note that neither of them are parading any flags?
The majority of the population of all countries are decent human beings – it’s the politicians and leaders that are the problem.
Fox News is gonna blow another gasket.
