Crazy Short Track
In short track speed skating, you never know what might happen in a race. Here is a video from the 1000m gold medal race at the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. An Australian, Steven Bradbury, the long shot in the race has a finish he would never have imagined!
In this race it was the strategy of Bradbury to stay behind the pack as he was not going to challenge Apollo Anton Ohno, Ahn Hyun-Soo and Canadian, Mathieu Turcotte. Because it was a high stakes race, Steven and his coach thought it likely that at least two skaters would crash, allowing medals for the remaining three. As luck would have it all four crashed and now it is said in Australia that if you have an unexpected success, it is “doing a Bradbury”.
