Canada's Cross Country Ski Coach Restores Our Faith In Humanity By Helping Opponent
February 12, 2014
Russian skier Anton Gafarov was expected to contend for a medal, but he struggled during his sprint and broke a ski in the semifinal. He tried to continue on, falling three times before being rescued by an opposing coach.
Canada's head coach Justin Wadsworth ran on to the course with a replacement ski and helped the Russian get back in the race.
"It was like watching an animal stuck in a trap," Wadsworth said. "You can't just sit there and do nothing about it. I wanted him to have dignity as he crossed the finish line."
Gafarov finished the race and was met with a standing ovation from the Sochi crowd.
Wadsworth may not be competing in the Olympics, but he has provided us with the best moment.
