A CHINESE skater did a Steven Bradbury to win gold at the Winter Olympics short track speed skating.                                                                                                                        Li Jianrou trailed her three rivals — Elise Christie of Great Britain, Arianna Fontana of Italy and Park Seung-hi of South Korea — in the 500m final before things quite literally fell her way to hand her an Olympic gold medal.
While it wasn’t an exact replica of Bradbury’s famous win in 2002 (the crash that delivered him victory came on the final turn, while Jianrou’s stroke of luck came with four laps to go), her win was remarkably similar.
Christie caused the carnage when she clipped Fontana when the pair were in second and third place.
Park almost escaped unscathed but then inexplicably fell and slid into the side of the rink, allowing Jianrou to cruise past and eventually win by six seconds.
        Bradbury’s win in the 1000m in Salt Lake City made him the first athlete in history from the southern hemisphere to claim a Winter Olympics gold medal. It made him a household name in Australia and, in a sign it was meant to be, came after the same thing happened in his semi-final race.

Wonder if Chinese posses the wit

To say " she did a Li Jianrou"

Don't think so myself though.

y'all been brainwashed by the media...and she did it her way to finish first  
a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...

He plan was to be last, if everybody fell over she would get the gold. We got a gold medal back in 2002 the same way in the same event. The South Korean went down in the process he took out the American and the Chinese on the last corner, Bradbury in last place got the gold medal
