Ksenia Afanasyeva's "Home Alone" Moment

While pursuing Facebook for interesting gymnastics news, I came upon this photo posted by Queen Elizabeth of Rewriting Russian Gymnastics.

Via Rewriting Russian Gymnastics Facebook
The caption reads: "The moment Ksenia Afanasyeva learned she had won gold in floor at the 2011 World Championships in Tokyo. Coach Maria Nazarova also reacts."

I saw this photo and it reminded me of a certain shot from a certain 1990 movie starring Macauly Culkin, called Home Alone.

Obviously, I am easily entertained, ha ha. Just a tie bit of random trivia. This movie according to Wikipedia was released November of 1990, Ksenia was born September 13, 1991.
