Dominican National Anthem a big hit in London

Santo Domingo.- “The Dominican Republic’s National Anthem is a lovely tune. Britain should borrow it for the rest of the Olympic Games," wrote British journalist Gordon Darroch in his Twitter account Monday, filling ever further the pride of thousands of Dominicans who were celebrating Felix Sanchez’s gold medal in London.

The English journalist (Gordon Darroch?@synthjock) of Scottish descent won great popularity among Dominicans who thanked him for the comment on the anthem via the social network.

Sanchez, 34, won the gold in the 400 meter hurdles on Monday and as he stood on the podium and hearing his country’s anthem play, burst into tears which sparked the crowd’s cheers.
