This Olympian Winning Gold Is All Of Us At Even The Slightest Accomplishment
China's Chen Long won gold in badminton at the Olympics — but you wouldn't know it from these photos.
The 27-year-old pulled out the best reaction after defeating Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei.
Hint: He cried. Hard.
I'm not talking weep-gently-into-a-pillow kind of cry; this was a complete breakdown full with uncontrollable tears of joy.
The Olympian cried so badly it looks like he lost.
It all started so well:
He pulled out all the moves to claim VICTORY. Obviously, Chen was overjoyed:
Oh, wait. Guys, he's really breaking down. Someone get in there and help him. He needs an adult.
It's getting worse. Maybe just leave him there a while longer.
No one can save Chen now. He's in full-blown crybaby mode.
Wow. Yeah, this guy needs his space. Let him weep.
He's up! OK, Chen, you're really milking it now. Pull yourself together, man. Wipe up those Olympic tears and collect your gold medal.
Here's the exact moment Chen's dreams became a reality and his eyes exploded with watery happiness:
Never change, Chen.
