Sad Simon Cho

Thursday, October 11, 2012

You might have heard about this already, and you may also not even care, but in case you do, or haven't, or just want some interesting news to talk about at the next dinner you might be attending:

He was 18 when won his Olympic medal in Vancouver as the youngest member of the short-track squad. He’s now the reigning world champion at 500 meters. On Sunday, he turned 21. But now Mr. Cho has admitted to secretly tampering with the skates of a Canadian athlete before a race last year, an unthinkable act of sabotage that the sport’s governing body, U.S. Speedskating, called “an egregious breach” of its code of ethics.

Winning is great, but it's not everything.

Second and third and just being there is also good enough.
