    The Korean won fair and square.
    The Americans got silver and bronze due to people falling.
    You are talking about the speed skating short track right?
    I hate when the U.S.A promotes an athlete before they compete, expecting them to win no matter what.
    Or maybe the American athletes should focus on training instead of commercials and endorsements?
    I shouldn't be saying anything, I'm no athlete.
    Go USA!!

    USA-Russia, hockey, Lake Placid Olympics! By far #1, but I also love seeing Tanya Harding boo hoo while asking to be allowed to retie her laces. Curling beauties bearing it all for the team 2006 Torino in a pre-O calendar!

    Reason Jaimaican's lost is being charged with murder one after slaying Bob!

    First winter Olympics I can remember is 1988. My fave moments:

    - Dan Jansen finally winning gold in 1994

    - US over Russia in the semis in hockey in 2002

    - Apollo Anton Ohno's short track races; I LOVE that sport

    Eddie the Eagle trained, lived and cut his ski jumping teeth in Lake Placid and lived in Lake Placid to train. A true underdog and of indomitable spirit. Just because he was not USA born does not mean we Yanks did not love the dude. Eddie the Eagle embodies everything great in sports. Winning isn't everything! How many competitiers can say rules were changed because of them? Eddie can!
