The been photo above of Russian Gymnast, Ksenia Semenova, giving a teammate a kiss on the lips after her uneven bar routine has been circulating throughout most of the day (I watched the video and it was really only just a peck). Sixteen year old girls kissing really isn't my thing, so I found the video below much more entertaining.
We know that Tiki and Jenna Wolfe don't seem to get the customary European Kiss, and apparently neither does U.S. Gymnast Alicia Sacramone. Here is the beleaguered vaulter, after taking a disappointing fourth in the event, receiving one of "those" kisses from an Italian competitor and walking away before she was finished....
Awkward! "You're going to take this third kiss even if it means it might come across looking like we're necking!" In Italy, two kisses is reserved for a greeting, but three kisses is for someone who just did something really good. I just love the determination from the Italian Gymnast, that's the kind of love the world needs! Good for her.
The Italian Gymnast Could've at Least Taken Alicia Sacramone to Dinner and a Movie First (TSB)
