Sticking my oar in with women's rowing gold medalists. I pity the fool who doesn't admire my look. pic.twitter.com/8NlPv9HL

Team GB rowers Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins were kind (and brave) enough to loan comedian Russell Brand their gold medals for a quick photo, which Brand tweeted today.
Grainger and Watkins took the gold in women’s double sculls August 3. Americans might be surprised to learn that Brand earned the Outstanding Contribution to Comedy honor at the British Comedy Awards in 2011.
