What ever happened to the Olympics' message of sportsmanship and goodwill? It got flipped off.
In yesterday’s speed skating semi-finals, Russian Daniil Aldoshkin and his team defeated the US skaters and while still circling the track, flipped the double-bird. Both hands. What an ass.
How did he defend himself when was asked about the gestures?
“I threw up my hands. I didn’t mean anything like that. I’m sorry if this offended anyone.”
Russia then moved onto the finals and lost to Norway. Karma is a bitch.
The above tweet translated:
“When it comes to sportsmanship, ROC skater Daniil Aldoshkin takes the crown. All this after a team pursuit semi-final won against the Americans… In the current political context, I wonder how to qualify the gesture…”
