Olympic athletes—champions who are paragons of the human form—are sometimes hard to relate to, seeing as they are objectively better than all of us. But Chinese swimmer Fu Yuanhui has captured the internet's heart, with her expressions of surprise and dorky dancing that seize her moment at the Olympics just as you would.

The most Fu Yuanhui moment yet was when she did an interview with a reporter after the 100m backstroke, saying "Even though I didn't win a medal..." only to find out on TV that yes, she did.

The Internet is professing their love.

Cartoonists are drawing their own artwork to celebrate Yuanhui's surprised face, which should definitely be turned into an emoji.
