Team Mexico got off to an amazing start by scoring a goal within the first 29 SECONDS of the match -- the fastest score in the Olympics since record-keeping started in 1976.

Brazil left the match understandably disappointed. Although the country is more or less the Mecca for soccer, they have never won an gold medal in the sport.

After the incredible first goal, Mexico held onto their lead into the halfway mark. Mexican striker Oribe Peralta also scored the second goal of the game in the 75th minute, securing the win for Mexico.

If you won an Olympic medal, would you take it off for anything? Felipe Katadai refused to and paid the price, breaking his in the shower. Said a team spokesperson:

"He was taking a shower with the medal when he dropped it. He then slept with the medal and realized later that it was broken. It wasn't a very smart thing to do."

Thankfully the IOC gave Katadai a replacement medal, probably with strict instructions to keep it in one piece. THIS IS THE LAST ONE YOU GET, SIR.
