Round his neck?
In the bank?
Hanging in the loo?
In his sock drawer?
Under a flower pot
by the back door?

I dunno. I give in. Where does Vyacheslav Ivanov keep his Olympic gold medal?

He's not entirely sure, unfortunately. Do you know why?

Nope. I don't know why. But I have a sneaky feeling you are going to tell me!

At the awards ceremony for his rowing gold, he got a bit excited and dropped it in the lake. His diving attempts were unsuccessful in recovering it

Poor bloke. I know he must have felt. I still remember the feeling when I once dropped my car keys, house keys etc in Oslo Fjord and they slid below the waters. It was one of those "Oh NO!! Sheeeeeit!" moments. Absolutely gut-wrenching watching everything happen like it was in extreme slow motion and being totally unable to stop the water swallowing them up. Forever.

Losing a gold medal must be worse, especially losing a gold medal just seconds after you've received it.
