Shani Davis won a gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver by skating in circles really fast.

Davis, in fact, became the first long-tracker in Olympic history to win back-to-back 1,000s but, unlike his command performance in Turin four years ago, this one had a high degree of difficulty. Skating in the last lap — and before a crowd that included comedian Steven Colbert, IOC president Jacques Rogge, VANOC president John Furlong and Premier Gordon Campbell — Davis trailed eventual silver medallist Tae-Bum Mo from Korea by a quarter of a second after the first split, but made up the difference with the second-fastest final lap of the competition.

He would win the gold by 18/100ths of a second with a time of 1:08.94, more than 3.5 seconds slower than his world-record time as the Richmond facility again lived up to its Slowval nickname.

  1. What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this. You just say so numerous things that come from nowhere that Im pretty sure Id have a fair shot. Your weblog is wonderful visually, I mean individuals wont be bored. But other people who can see past the videos as well as the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this topic.
