Host country Great Britain is doing surprisingly well at the Summer Games and is currently fourth in the Olympic medal count. They're also leading the standings when it comes to showing community.
The video above shows the packed crowd at Olympic Stadium singing Beatles hit "All You Need Is Love," on Saturday night. That night was a memorable one for the host country; three of its athletes won gold medals in a 44-minute span, prompting the song.
"Incredible night," said Greg Rutherford, who along with Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah won gold for Great Britain that night. "I mean how many people expected three gold medals out of three possible gold medals? It’s the greatest night in British athletics history, I think. “It’s been about inspiring a generation. What can be more inspring than going out and winning?”
“It’s just amazing. If it wasn’t for the crowd I don’t think that would happen,” said Farah, who won the 10,000 meters, according to The Associated Press. “They give you that lift, that boost. It’s just incredible.”
Great Britain has dubbed the signature evening "Super Saturday."
Maybe that's what the host country needed to get excited about the Games. If you recall what happened during the opening ceremony, former Beatles member Paul McCartney heard crickets when he asked the crowd to sing along with him. Maybe the fans were just expecting the worst after the low expectations set by the country's Olympics chief. They're certainly on schedule to surpass that.
