Steven bradbury

In 2002 Salt Lake City Steven Bradbury won the final.

After nearly loosing his life when he cut his leg open on a rival's skate.

He also broke his neck when he was training.

He had been in four Olympic Games and didn't think he performed to the best of his ability.



He skated his best at the quarter finals beating a four time world champion.

In the semi-final he finished second after several opponents tripped over.

In the final on the last lap he was metres behind when suddenly, all of his opponents tripped over so he took the advantage and won!

When he was receiving his gold medal he wasn't sure if he deserved the gold medal, he had been through a lot so he took it.
