Er lupetto nuotando

This is Milorad
Čavić moments before the men's final of 100 meters butterfly, in the World Championships taking place in Rome. Naturally he lost after such brazen flirtation with lady luck, despite holding a newly set world record going into the final. It was a Roma towel after all, it's only to be expected that some of the club's characteristics rubs off. Can't blame his instincts for crowd pleasing though.

Video below, @ 1'24. Please note as an extra bonus the music played as the swimmers enter; the soundtrack from Gladiator. This could only in Rome, and it is spectacularly corny and lovable.
