You’ve Gotta Love This ‘Thrill Of Victory’ Photo, No Matter Where You’re From


Apparently Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia turned in a pairs free skate performance for the ages, winning the gold at the Iceberg Skating Palace. Not sure how you know you’ve won the gold while you’re still out on the ice, but it makes for some dramatic photos when the two broke down with pure joy and relief.

    i didn’t like it actually. I think you can do that on timed events but they still needed to be judged. They acted like they already won..and they hadn’t

  • helicohunter

    They knew that they had given the performance of their lives on home ice and that deserved celebrating. I don’t recall what the stats were, but I think they knew they’d won some color of medal. I don’t begrudge them their very emotional celebration. Tears of joy shouldn’t be suppressed.

    thats a good point

    They dominated. Well done!
