    this is pretty common for speed skating events

  3. Mark says:


    I can imagine this happens a lot given the nature of the sport and the competitiveness of the athletes.

  4. Carl says:

    Just to add a bit … when I first started reading the report, it sounded exactly like a intentional attack, but as I did some research on the topic as I translated, and found the original report, the tone was in fact very neutral, or at least not provocative.

    Like lay low moe said, it’s pretty common to accidents in a fast sport like this. Blood shed, less so, but not unusual I’d say. I wouldn’t judge what had happened as an malicious attack by the Korean athlete as some Chinese report would like to propagate.

    But then again, if the Korean wasn’t pushing the line… this probably could have been avoided.

  5. Voice of China says:

    Great example of dirty South Koreans doing what they do best.

  6. Jc.yin says:

    Where is Korean Guy rushing here for comments?

  7. Junzi says:

    Dirty barbarian!

  8. Junzi says:

    Must be one of those junkie barbarian that didn’t take their compulsory plastic surgery to open their eyes.

    Having lived for many years in Scandinavia I can testify that no matter you are a hockey player, figure skater, speed skater or anyone else involved with razor sharp footwear over many years, you’d consider yourself lucky to only have a one digit number of scars to show for it. I only played hockey for 2 years as a kid but I have 1 big and 4 minor scars from it still. A girl in my middle school was really into ice dancing (the couples kind). You’d be amazed how often they would get cut or cut each other during practice.

  10. Curren$y says:

    At least it wasn’t in the face!
    Then again, if it were in the face, those Koreans would fix him up nicely!

  11. Short track skating is one of the most difficult sports to play. Clearly from the anti-Korean comments, you guys have no fucking idea how short track skating works This stuff is actually common, two skaters will often collide. It’s a very dangerous sport.

  12. freakboy says:

    This is a simple accident and nothing more anybody who sees it as anything else is simply looking for shit where there is no shit

  13. Huzhang says:

    Short track is like half speed, half pushing other people around
    I don’t see why they can’t just have individual lanes like they do in track & field

  14. YANLONG says:

    dirty korean…come and talk like that in front of any chinese ppl, m sure they will beat the shit out of you.

  15. MonkeyMouth says:

    The race was fair and square. The Korean actually moved his right leg out of the way to limit the impact. Hoe-Suck gets the gold…..Hamelin the silver and Kim “Tap Sum” Byeong Jun gets third.
    In this sport, the track is short, and the corners tight. This happens all the time. There is no conspiracy here. Besides, as you may know, most atheletes share a fraternal bond with each other, and leave political squabblings for some other forum.

  16. Vince says:

    i wonder what chinese koreans would have to say about this. Would they side with china or korea? lol

  17. MonkeyMouth says:

    i only posted the comment to make the ‘Tap Sum’ Byeung joke. so, sorry vince, my post was barbed, but not for reasons that you mention. so thanks, for noticing. but, as you say, this is about speed skating, and there was NO foul play in the event, and the commenters here are just trying to spread their hate with each other.


  18. adamHK says:

    I’m grateful it wasn’t a Japanese.

    • Mr_HK says:

      Why not?! Just because you like Angela Au, and that she is going out with a Japanase man?!

      Or are you the Japanese man dating Angela Au??!!! Hahaha TAP SUM BONG!

  19. Johnny says:

    Oh Koreans, so freaking amusing and pathetic. We’re still gonna feed that pathetic NK regime of their and we’re gonna sit back and enjoy as as their malnourished citizens starve to death and their southern brothers can’t do anything about it 🙂

  20. Chiize says:

    LOL after reading the title, i thought he did it on purpose

  21. SaveUighur says:

    Oh yeah, I want more of this. Clap to Koreans

  22. pauldsu says:
