A French Olympic swimmer has a Hebrew tattoo on his arm, the world learned as Fabien Gilot raised his arms in victory on Sunday, after his team won the 4X100 relay race at the 2012 Olympic Games.

The inking, on the inside of his left arm, says “I’m nothing without them.” Gilot, who isn’t Jewish, told reporters the tattoo was dedicated to his family, as were three stars inked on his stomach — one for each of his siblings.

Team France won the relay race, staying ahead of the US team who had come from behind to beat them at the Beijing Games in ’08, while Russia finished third.
