Meet Bjorn Barrefors.
Bjorn is a Swedish decathlete. He is a computer science student at the University of Nebraska. He’s an All-American in the decathlon and the heptathlon.
He apparently has quite a following as well. Take a look at this tribute video. If you can get through 17 seconds without giggling like a child, you are more mature than I am.
Sing it, Melissa Etheridge. Sing it. Unfortunately Bjorn did not join Sweden’s Olympic team in London and that is a tragedy. But, I think this tells us all something about the spirit of the games regardless. I’m not sure what that is, but it’s something.
Cap tip to Scott Carefoot on the find.
None of us want to know how or where.
