Rio: The Canadian swimmer who gives his dad the finger before every race

Source: YouTube/US Swimming. Don't be offended if you see a swimmer give the crowd at the Rio Olympic pool a crude one-fingered salute. It's just Canadian swimmer Santo Condorelli doing his normal thing.Before every race Condorelli gives his father, Joseph, the finger. Joseph flips the bird right back. It's a unique pre-race routine the pair have been completing for several years - and for good reason.
