    Ezekiel Kemboi: "The Peacock"

    (CBS/AP) Kenyan steeplechase winner Ezekiel Kemboi celebrated his gold medal with a hip-swiveling, arm-shaking peacock dance for 80,000 people in the Olympic Stadium.

    Eight years after winning at the Athens Olympics, the two-time world champion won his second Olympic title in 8 minutes, 18.56 seconds.

    "The dance was a spontaneous thing," Kemboi said. "It was a bit of fun."

    It's not the first time the Kenyan has displayed some creative footwork after a race. Last year after winning the world steeplechase title in South Korea, he also broke out some dance moves.
