This is one of the most exciting Olympic sports, short track team speed skating. For years the USA dominated with Apolo Ohno. Yesterday the Hungarian 4-man team pulled off a miracle and knocked off... well, everybody. The first Winter Gold ever for the country of Hungary.

I couldn't find a free video on the net yet, but watch this, and check out how the relays take place... not with a baton, but with a push-off.

Hungary has sent athletes to every Winter Olympics since 1924, but before Thursday only had six medals — two silvers and four bronzes — to show for it. This medal was the first in the Winter Olympics for the Hungarians since Andras Sallay took silver in ice dancing in Lake Placid in 1980.

Nobody I ask cares about the Olympics, but I stay glued to it. It's different. I find it to be interesting and fun.

Yes, Hungary, the little country that can.

Been in the news lately for standing up to the EU for it's core values.

Thanks Rusty for bringing these Olympic news and some Hungarian sports history here, and to you all who reacted.

True we Hungarians are really proud now...have you also seen the Hungarian figure skating girl selecting AC/DC as theme music? That was also unique!

Thanks Bob unfortunately Hungary's - or rather, our Prime Minister Viktor Orban's - appreciation

in the EU is more controversial and less glorious than our Olymic team's recent act.. Huh...

I missed the AC/DC skate. But soon after I wrote this post, the re-run of the Short Track team race came on TV, so I set my camera on the tripod and recorded it. I think it's a wilder ride than the one I posted above. I need to look into possible YouTube rule restrictions before I post it here though.

Australia isn't known for its Winter Sports prowess but our most famous Gold Medal was in 2002 with Steve Bradbury beating the odds.
Ok, so it's probably not the preferred method of winning a medal, but any Olympic Gold medal is an Olympic Gold medal.  Steve just claimed it was all about tactics.  In fact, the event has put a new phrase into the Aussie vernacular.  Whenever anyone takes an unexpected win, it's said that they "pulled a Steve Bradbury".
Well, he's made his mark lol!

Hahaha, That's a good one. A win is a win. That's why I always like to watch that sport when I can. One of those butt sliders was Apolo. You never know what's going to happen on that free-for-all last lap.
