Pictures from Sochi 2014 — 4 Comments

  1. I enjoy some of the less spectacular moments. The Gold Medal winner that waited at the finish line for the very last person to come through and shook his hand. The Canadian coach who hopped the fence to give a competitor wit a broken ski a new one so he could finish the race. The guy who knew he didn’t have a chance to win that gave his spot to someone who did and that guy won. The Gold Medalist who gives his medal to his handicapped brother…
    There are more moments like these, those are just a few off the top of my head. Things like that give me faith in humanity.

  2. Well, in the curiosities regarding participants participants, you get also a Filipino chap in Figure Skating: Michael Christian martinez (http://www.sochi2014.com/en/athlete-michael-christian-martinez) who finished 19th, ahead of one of the Spanish chaps!!

    Also, the violin player Vanesa Mae managed to finish last (but finish indeed) in his Giant Slalom event, doing better than some of the ones that did not finish… being 35 years old! She was competing for Thailand, by the way.
