 List of Olympians Who Cry Most After Winning

It has been an emotional roller coaster for athletes and their families at the London Olympics.

The Wall Street Journal reviewed the tape of 129 gold-medal winners from the London Games to find out what happens most often.

About 16 percent of them cried at some point during the ceremony.

Another 16 percent either bit or kissed their medal on the podium, while 44 percent sang along with their anthem-sometimes through a stream of tears.

Women cry more than men-25 percent compared to 8 percent-but many of the men who did cry seriously lost it.

South Africa's Chad le Clos needed tissues after he beat Phelps in the 200-meter butterfly, while the Dominican Republic's Felix Sanchez was a complete wreck after winning the 400-meter hurdles.

North Korea's Un Guk Kim jumped in celebration of his new world record in the men's 62-kg weightlifting competition.

Among the three countries with the most gold medals thus far, China cries the least, with only 7 percent of its athletes succumbing to tears.

More than 17 percent of American winners cried, while a whopping 37.5 percent of athletes from host country Great Britain cried.

Since they weren't crying, the Chinese also sang the most: 92 percent of their athletes belted out the anthem, compared to 61 percent from Great Britain and 44 percent from the US.
