¡Felicidades Guatemala!

El Guatemalteco, Erick Barrondo, won first ever medal in the nations’ Olympic history hoy!  He won a ed silver in the men’s 20 kilometres walk.  What was even more fántastico were his comments afterwards!

“I hope that this medal inspires the kids at home to put down guns and knives and pick up a pair of trainers instead. If they do that, I will be the happiest guy in the world.”  Spoken like a true Olypian!
