Today . . Germany's silver medallist in the Olympic luge David Moeller took an embarrassing trip to the dentist after breaking his front tooth biting into his prize.
A sheepish Moeller, 28, explained: "The photographers wanted us to bite into our medals at the presentation ceremony. And a corner of my front tooth broke off". Trust the German's to take it to the 'nth degree.
"It wasn't too bad and it didn't hurt," added Moeller, saying that it had happened before to him at home. Guy obviously has brittle teef and should have perhaps worn a mouthguard.
"But it is annoying when you can't smile as you normally do. (Germans smile?) And because I want to have nice pictures and happy memories of my Olympic Games, I went to the dentist to get it repaired," he said. Aww bless . .You do this . . .!!!!!.
and worry about this . . .
. . . .OK not your average tooth fairy . .
Moeller was part of a German 1-2 in the men' luge on Sunday at the 2010 Gamers in Vancouver which run until February 28, with compatriot Felix Loch winning gold.
And I know there are those of you who aren't impressed with the cost and pomp surrounding the Vancouver games but having lived through the Summer Olympics in Sydney I can only say that it was one of the most wonderful, feel-good times of my life and left us with an expensive but wonderful park and entertainment area . .Oh and good on you Tori Bright you little 'beaudy' . . .Half Pipe Gold . .not bad for a country that has snow for 2 months of the year in just one place!
Have a great weekend folks! As usual I am very late catching up on Theme Thursday but I will get there . .hmmm . . .Adam's cooking bruschetta and spaghetti and meat balls . . maybe I won't . . just joshing . .of course I will!
