The thrill of victory. The agony of defeat. These are the Olympics! (You can say that like the dude in 300 says "This is Sparta!" if you want).
If there is one thing that's almost always guaranteed during the Olympic games, it's that the athletes will cry. They might be crying because they just lost a big event and missed out on medaling for their country, or they might be crying tears of joys as they stand on that podium as their national anthem plays. We're choking up just thinking about it, so we can't imagine how some of these people hold it together when they get their gold, silver or bronze.
And sometimes they might cry because they are in Sochi and things seem to be not so great over there at times.
Anyway, here are all the people who have cried (so far) during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi:
Dario Cologna, Switzerland: Gold medal in men's cross-country skiathlon
Daniel Wende and Maylin Wende, Germany: Sitting in the "kiss and cry zone" after performing their pairs figure skating free program.
Dominique Gisin, Switzerland: Gold medal in women's Alpine skiing downhill
Kaitlyn Farrington and Kelly Clark, United States: A celebratory hug after winning the gold and bronze medals in the snowboard halfpipe event
Justine Dufour-Lapointe, Canada: Gold medal in women's freestyle skiing
Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov, Russia: These two are in tears after finishing their pairs figure skating event.
Heidi Weng, Norway: Bronze medal in the skiathlon event
Lara Gut, Switzerland: Gut gets emotional after realizing she only finished third in women's Alpine wkiing downhill.
Lee Sang Hwa, South Korea: Gold medal in women's speedskating (500 meters).
Bring on the tears, Sochi! Bring 'em on!
