Congrats to Aussie short track speed skater Steven Bradbury, who was the only person to figure out a reliable strategy to win. It goes like this:
A.) Skate as closely to the pack as possible, make not one attempt to pass anyone the whole race.
B.) On the last lap, stay back a litle bit, and let the cheating scummy Asian competitors trip everyone and pull them down.
C.) Avoid the pile-up, and skate in unmolested.
The judges (love judges in a race) properly awarded Bradbury the Gold, who did EVERYTHING he was supposed to, so I don’t wanna hear any bitching about him. Where they erred was by not sentencing the the Asian kids to a good public flogging for being cheating shits, and attempting to ruin the semi-final and ruining the final.
*** Update ***
In a post-race interview, Apollo was much more gracious than I was and called it all part of the race. I will defer to him, even though I still think pulling people down is cheating…..
At any rate, grats to the Aussie, and this is their first medal, so I am happy for them.
