    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter Misael Rincon captured these lively images of his Dominican work colleagues in raptures over runner Felix Sanchez's Olympic victory in the 400m hurdles. Sanchez was visibly emotional on the podium on receiving his medal, in no small part due to the memory of his grandmother, who passed away during the Beijing Olympics where he competed and in whose memory he had vowed to claim victory in London. "We saw the race and everything went crazy when he won," said our iReporter, who works for a TV station in the Dominican capital of Santo Domingo. "It was very exciting to hear our national anthem and see our flag over two great powers ... we are still crying!"
