This photo appeared in my email the other day from Associate IAAF Web Editor, Bob Ramsak.
Per IAAF Web Editor Chris Turner, Bob is off for two weeks vacation in Vietnam. Bob sends out some fun pictures from his various environs.
Apparently, Bob was on a motorcycle taxi and saw this Li-Ning shop in Hanoi, with the large picture of Yelena Isinbayeva. He convinced the taxi driver to stop and shot this picture for your global entertainment. Thanks, Bob!
