US rower at Olympics

With the tightening of Olympics uniforms – this was bound to happen, no?

The Examiner is reporting that United States Rower, Henrik Rummel is denying having an erection while his team was being given their bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

“This is me and I swear it’s not erect!” Rummel posted under the Rummelator username on social networking site Reddit. “I don’t know why it ended up in that position but there you go.”

According to the paper:

Everyone is paying close attention to everything in the 2012 Olympics. Henrik Rummel recently won a bronze medal as part of the US rowing team. On Tuesday, pictures came out of him accepting his medal and it looks like Henrik Rummel has an erection. Check out the picture and see what you think!

Henrick Rummel was quick to defend himself about it. He went to the website Reddit to say it was him, but not an erection at all! Here is what he said: “This is me and I swear it’s not erect! I don’t know why it ended up in that position but there you go.”

Many people had a hard time believing that it was Henrick Rummel on the site talking to fans. He wanted to prove to them that it was him so he took a picture of himself and even held up a sign with the date on it to prove it.

In response to his post, another site user responded: “Dude when you win a medal in the goddamn olympics your penis can be however you want. You earned it.”

There you go.
