Aliya watching Kharenkova on the side like a stage mum!
Then clapping like a boss right after. They got gold!
“To tell you the truth I am too excited to tell you what is happening right now. As for Aliya she is our sister, our world star, our coach and even our mother, she is all for us. We are all very happy.”

VETERAN OF THE MEDAL PODIUM!
I have never drank Coke for so long that i don’t remember the last time.
So when my friend and I are discussing Coke and that it’s one of humanity’s main killers and is nothing but high fructose corn syrup.
She said “but can you imagine life without coke? like really i can’t”
i just looked at her but deep inside me im like shit yeah i haven’t taken that trash for as long as i can remember!
Thinking of side shaving my hair but have no idea how it would look to me. This is my failed attempt to see. Also, my mother would kill me.
Still thinking though lol
No, it’s you. Always been you Adam.

My favourite gold medal win at the Sochi Olympics!
Started off terribly
China’s Liang Wenhao crashed after 2 laps
Viktor Ahn, known for his strategy to follow the leaders, then sprint using an outside passing lane (or occasionally an inside passing lane if the opportunity arises) with only two or three laps to go started to pounce
He unleashed his Usain Bolt and passed China’s Wu Dajing at the start of the final lap to first place
First with 41.312. Wu of china finishes 2nd with 41.516. Canada’s Charle Cournoyer gets the bronze.
What Olympic golds are made of! I could watch this all day!
This is Ahn’s first Olympic gold for the 500m. An event that has been elusive to him but finally over now. He becomes the first athlete to win gold in all four short track events in Olympic Winter Games history (men’s 500m, 1000m, 1500m, 5000m relay) at 28, also one of the oldest athletes competing.
His 8 medals in total matches the record of US skater Apolo Anton Ohno, making them the most decorated speed skaters of all time. But Viktor Ahn has 6 golds in all of his 8 while Ohno has only 2 golds. Many including Ohno considers Ahn the best short track skater in history.
Ohno on this 500m performance:
”It was Ahn’s clinic on how to short track speedskate tonight. He wrote a textbook,”
The king of Sochi and best short track skater in the world!
