U.S. rower Henrik Rummel posted on a web site that he was not sporting an erection when he received his bronze medal with the rest of the team.

Rummel wrote on the web site Reddit, "This is me and I swear it's not erect! I don't know why it ended up in that position but there you go."

Gawker later interviewed Rummel, and he said, "If I did have one, you can bet I would've tried harder to cover it up with the flowers."

He added that the chances of erection may be a recurring issue with rowers.

"The spandex doesn't leave a lot to the imagination and there are many unflattering awards dock photos out there," Rummel said. "I haven't heard of any erections occurring on the podium."

His girlfriend wishes it had never happened, but she can appreciate the humor in "her boyfriend's package going viral," he said.
