Lustral Olympic Moments
1. We could not resist sharing this charming image of Hunky Olympic swimmers Cameron van der Burgh (left) of South Africa and Australia's Christian Sprenger sharing the moment after van der Burgh won the gold in the Men's 100m Breastsroke. It took him just 58.4 seconds to smash the previous world record.
2. Marcel Nguyen and Philipp Boy, German gymnasts. No medal in the team event, but 2 silvers for Marcel in the individuals.
3. No medal for brilliant cyclist sprinter Mark Cavendish. But that doesn't stop the BBC's Jake Humphrey planting a sweet kiss on his cheek. Copyright lustralboy.com
Lustralboy wishes all participants the thrill of competition and the reward, at least, of a personal best.
