Olympics day 11, drama for Sven Kramer

24 02 2010

How unlucky was that. You are around 3 seconds faster than the number 2 at the time and seem to be easily cruising to a win and then your coach makes a mistake, thinks you are in the wrong lane and tells you to go and take the inner lane instead of the outer and you do just that because you only have a split-second to think. Just so sad and the Netherlands with 6.7 million people watching(around 2/5th of the population at 11 at night was mourning this. One of the darkest days in dutch sport. Feel not only sorry for Kramer but also his coach Kemkers. People saying he deserved this because he was rude to an american reporter after a win at the 5K are just ignorant. I think that if a dutch reporter would have asked Peyton Manning, minutes after winning the Super Bowl, if he would say his name and the sport he plays in the camera, I bet he would not have done that either. Korea’s Lee was handed the gold, silver for Skobrev and bronze for dutch De Jong.

At the biathlon it was time for the team relay and the German ladies were already handicapped before the event started. Two-time Gold medal winner at these Olympics, Magdalena Neuner, did not start because she was too tired after all her races. Germany won bronze anyway, behind Russia and France.
