Sjinkie Knegt gives double middle-finger salute to rival Viktor Ahn

January 21, 2014

Being pipped at the post in a major sporting event is never fun.

But Dutch speed skater Sjinkie Knegt has perhaps re-defined the concept of being a sore loser after giving not one, but two middle-finger salutes to a fellow competitor as they crossed the line at the European short track speed skating championships at the weekend.

A triumphant Viktor Ahn, a three-time Olympic gold medallist from Russia, was filmed skating over the finishing line with his hands held aloft as his team clinched gold in the men's 5000 metre-relay in Dresden, Germany.

But it was the angry reaction of Knegt, who was filmed flipping the bird and pretending to kick Ahn from behind, that captured everyone's attention.

For his unsportsmanlike conduct, the Dutch team was disqualified from the event, which is the final major tournament before next month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

It also cost Knegt the bronze medal in the individual standings.


That's one angry Dutchie! :gasmaske_eek:

Right, and then he does the Black Power salute!

That's so '68!

I'd say that was a gold medal finger salute...:D

Those Dutchies all look the same to me.

Great picture. I love those inner side gloves. Reminds me of a tree frog.
