Andy Murray, Serena Williams, Michael Phelps

As we mentioned this morning, after seeing Usain Bolt‘s gold-medal celebration, we have certain high expectations for how we’d celebrate Olympic victory … in our heads. But there are all sorts of ways to express your joy over emerging as the greatest person IN THE WORLD at whatever it is you do. We figured we could group them into categories, for convenience sake, as we relive some triumphant — and totally gleeful — moments from the past week and look forward to more in the days to come.

What do you do after defending your gold medal title and setting an Olympic record in the process? On your country’s independence day?

We don’t need to understand Jamaican slang to get the gist of that. According to the Daily Mail, the three lovely ladies inexplicably repping the Westside in this pic are Jamina Roberts, Ulrika Agren and Isabella Gullden of the Swedish women’s handball team. They, at least have no more worries in the competition, after being knocked out by South Korea on Sunday.
