Santo Condorelli is a 21-year-old Olympic swimmer who is in the news for the wrong reasons.
All things considered, not wrong for him and his family, but rather because of his rituals before each race, some sensitive eyes are getting offended.
Obviously, young Santo isn’t a terrible child however he has the habit for glimmering his dad the middle finger before each race.
We didn’t know the reason as of recently, so lets take a look!!
This 21-year-old swimmer represented Canada in Olympics 2016.
This young boy from Portland have set two swimming records in 2015.
But the most important part about this swimmer is that he gives the finger before every race.
He casually flips before every race.
Apparently, he claims that he doesn’t mean to offend anyone because the finger is for his dad.
As a child, he was smaller than rest of the children of his age so he would feel exceptionally threatened. Each time he would go for a race, he would be extremely frightened. Thus, this custom began.
Santo Condorelli’s father started training him since he was 5 years old.
Since his childhood was truly frightened, his dad thought the most ideal approach to get over his fears was to accept no one was around.
Before his first race, he looked into the crowd for his dad and flipped the middle finger.
Now he is a top swimmer but still the ritual continues..
Despite, winning race after race, Santo Condorelli never stopped the ritual.
He have no sense to offend anyone, but this ritual continues as it is just a good luck ritual with his father before every race.
