“The Americans? We will smash them. That’s what we came here for.”

Ah, the sweet revenge of victory is U.S. response to French swimmer’s taunts…and add this to the French to-do list at the Olympics: trash talk after you win the race.

French swimmer Alain Bernard fueled media frenzy before the men’s 4×100 meter freestyle relay in Beijing with his prediction for the race: “The Americans? We will smash them. That’s what we came here for.”

The results? You just have to see it!
