Hungary's Peter Modos celebrates after his victory over Denmark's Haakan Erik Nyblom in a 55-kg bronze …

Hungarian wrestler Peter Modos certainly isn't sneezing at a bronze medal.

After beating Denmark's Erik Nybloom to win a bronze out of the 55-kilogram consolation bracket, Modos ran over and jumped so high into his coach's arms that his torso nearly smacked his coach's shoulder.

Modos then ran across the mat and did a cartwheel, which he followed with a succession of backflips.

He also hugged Nybloom, who understandably wasn't all that into it.
