Winning a gold medal at the Olympics is a very emotional time.  For most athletes it is the culmination of a lifetime of training.

It should come as no surprise that 16% of the gold medal winners break down in tears on the podium, but who cries the most?

After watching 129 London winners accept their medals, here's the count:

One-quarter of women cry.
8% of men break down (and most broke down in a big way).
• 7% of Chinese winners cry, compared to 17% of US winners and 37% of British winners.
• All in all, about 16% of gold-medal winners cried
16% bit or kissed the medal.
• 44% sang along to their national anthem.
