As the camera panned across the 204 nations as their athletes came into the Olympic Stadium for the last time, Kieran Behan – Ireland’s second ever gymnastics entrant to the Olympic Games – took another moment to shine. Waving his Team Ireland flag and performing an impromtu tuck back:
The moment was enjoyed by many a gymnastics fan. One fan tweeted ” **BREAKING** Kieran Behan has just won the Olympic Closing Ceremony.” Kieran missed out on the Opening Ceremony as his competition was scheduled the morning after the mammoth event. Still as proud as ever for our gymnast who has inspired many a young athlete.
Kudos to the LOCOG on one amazing Olympic Games – the Closing Ceremony was spectacular, the Opening Ceremony was a hard act to follow.
