Turning Silver into Gold

Spanish track runner Bruno Hortelano came in second in the 200 meter race at the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam yesterday. Churandy Martina crossed the finish line first. Hortelano spoke to a Dutch reporter after the race, and despite some language troubles, told her his silver medal was a dream come true.

But it was not to be. Martina was disqualified for stepping on the line twice, and Hortelano was actually the first place winner! Hortelano wasn’t sure if it was true, or just another language difficulty. His response is cute as can be. -via reddit
