BLOG: Sonic finally makes Olympics appearance

Everybody knows Sonic is the world's fastest hedgehog, but he's never made it to the finals of the Olympic Games... until now.


Puerto Rican runner Javier Culson took the bronze medal in the 400-meter hurdles at the London Olympics this week. Look a little closer and you'll notice a certain blue mascot accompanied him on the podium.

Culson's sporting a Sonic the Hedgehog tattoo on his arm, depicting Sega's hedgehog in front of the Puerto Rican flag. Maybe he was particularly excited for The Secret Rings? The cycle continues...
