Personally, I think when you spend your life training for competition you should be allowed to celebrate your successes. As long as a winner doesn't literally get in the faces of their competitors, I think the onus is on the others to be good losers. Also, it's another one of those things that the media likes to make a big deal about but it's really a non story.

Well, in popular sports like Football and Basketball they do get in their faces and it's quite common and acceptable. I see that crap, "I'm BAD, I'm BAD! Look at me!" and it's like watching children on a playground. Compare this to the dignity of Nastia Luken accepting her Gold medal, or most any other Olympian, because they appreciate and acknowledge the skill of the competition. But an NBA player dunks a ball in the middle of game which is separated by 2 points and he's jumping around like he's the king of court. STFU.
