We Are All Independent Olympic Athletes

New, comments

Three athletes came to the Olympics under the Olympic flag, otherwise known as Independent Olympic Athletes. They come from South Sudan and Netherlands Antilles, and are just happy as hell to be in London. Really, their entrance into the Olympic Stadium during the Opening Ceremony was the best, and it's not particularly close.

While most athletes stoically walked around the stadium or whipped out camera phones to record the action, these three decided to have a party. Everybody dance!

This is how it should be anyway. The Opening Ceremony should be a dance-off. A colorful, athletic dance-off.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be rooting for the Independent Olympic Athletes. And you should be, too.
