Iceland Athlete Guðjón Valur Sigurðsson (Handball)

Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson - He plays for AG Copenhagen professionally

So, as the Olympics are coming up, let's take a look at a few of the Athletes.  Having watched the Icelandic Handball team in 2008 - and they won the Silver, doubling their summer medal count - I have a soft spot in my heart for the Icies.
This is Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson (which means Gudjon, son of Sigurd - so we will go with Gudjon from here on in).  Now, in 2008 Gudjon was on the team that won the Silver.
If you haven't seen handball - you are missing a ton of fun.
It is ... well, hard to describe.  It is like water polo - on land in the space of a basketball court, with smaller soccer nets at the end.
It is really fast, and like Basketball, you can't move with the ball unless you dribble.  But the ball in Handball is really small, and gets thrown into the net. so it moves really fast.

Do I have to point out the obvious sexual innuendo that Gudjon is displaying in his champaigne celebration? The dude's gotta be more subtle in the way he expresses himself.

Best of luck to him this go around...in the games and his celebratory choices.
