If you're like a lot of us, you were pretty psyched when America won
gold at the Men’s 4×100 meter freestyle final. If you're like Rachel Shukert of Jewcy's smash hit Protocols column,
you were doubly psyched about the fact that half of the winning team
was Jewish. As Rachel's father so aptly put it, “Two Jews, a black guy,
and a porpoise. That’s America! I love this country!" Garret Weber-Gale and Jason Lezak,
the Jews of the 4×100 meter freestyle, got us wondering about the rest
of the hale and hearty MOTs competing.

Each night we witness countless athletes in silent prayer beseeching Jesus to grant them victory. While it's safe to say that victory is on the minds of the athletes presented in the following gallery, you can be sure it's not Jesus that's in their prayers.  Here they are in all of their
Olympian glory.
