    Anybody watch this short track speed skater get wiped out on the last turn during the finals race?

    Man, that blows!! He was leading the last couple laps and some ding dong had to elbow him, throwing his rythm off and causing a nasty spill between him and three other skaters.

    Luckily, he was on the last turn and got up fast enough to slide over the finish line for second place.

    The gold medalist in this race was way in last place and crossed over the lone skater. [​IMG]

    If they show it in the slow motion from the front you can see the Korean(I think) grab onto his leg...[​IMG] what a rip off.. I heard he got a huge nasty cut in his leg from a skate too[​IMG]

    Thats raceing, nothing better. You don't know who's going to win until they cross the finish line.

    It looked to me like the Korean fell, and took out the leading top 4 competetors. The guy that was in last place- took home the gold. Apollo had his head in the game, and kicked his skate across the line to win silver. -very cool finish.

    And thats raceing.

    Props to Ohno, that guy has every reason to be pissed off at the world and cause alot of probs but he had the balls to say I did my best and I got a silver for my efforts, so what, Im happy. He's still got a few races to run if his leg isnt too cut up.

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    The amazing thing is, you never once saw him get mad or show his frustrations at all. Not even one look of a frown or mouthing off or anything, just an " accept it and get on with it" attitude. Very cool and good sportsmanship if you ask me. [​IMG]

    I thought about the rerun also but what happens if you are happy with the silver because the injury?

    Then that would suck.

    The dude has patience - I got so wound up that I said if I was him (like I could skate.... right) I would have pulled off my skates and started playing Ginsu....

    Yep, that is a fine example of an athlete who has his head in the game. [​IMG]

    You notice the replays where they showed his father reacting? The fathers face and reactions were "louder" than Apolo's. [​IMG] That would be the normal reaction for any parent after watching their own child anyways.

    Still a good but disappointing race.
