Olympic Gymnasts Get Friendly

August 19, 2008

Apparently, this is how Russian gymnasts celebrate Olympic success. Not that we're complaining. The image shows Ksenia Semenove going all Denise Richards/Neve Campbell on her teammate after successfully completing her uneven bar routine. Apparently these smooches are much more innocent than this image suggests, but US gymnast Alicia Sacramone still didn't know what to do with herself when an Italian competitor came in for the kill. Experience the awkwardness after the jump. 

This kiss would have to go down as one of the most awkward kisses of all time. Maybe Alicia was just annoyed that she came in fourth or she just didn't understand the etiquette of the European air kiss. Either way the Italian is lucky Alicia didn't do this .
