Stripped of a Gold

Can you imagine? Did you guys see it? I’d be way pissed off too if I were this skater. Imagine knowing you were going to win gold, you moved to the outer lane like you were supposed to and your coach tells you get to the inner lane and he does not thinking fast enough and blows every chance he ever had in that race. I don’t think there is anything anybody can say to make him feel better. He had it. He had gold had he not gone to the inner lane. Sure he will most likely be able to come back to the next winter Olympics but that’s not the point. He could have a gold NOW. Should the coach be fired? He, of all people, should of known which lane he needed to be in. I’ve never seen anything like it before. I really feel horrible for Kramer and for the Netherlands.

    Well, here a comment for someone from the Netherlands. I watched the whole evening and I was like ‘what just happenend?’. I mean he could have had that gold medal, because he was faster than Lee. It’s really such a shame..

    Well we still have the bronze medal from Bob de Jong.

    I saw that and it was horrible. I felt so bad for the skater after working so hard for his Olympic dream.
