The Vancouver Winter Olympics kick off on Friday night – a quadrennial celebration of skiing, skating, bobsledding, and basically every other sport that Australia’s bad at. (And what the hell is with curling (previously on JRE)? That’s not a sport, that’s competitive cleaning.)
So to keep all the Aussie readers cheerful throughout the upcoming medal drought, here’s Australia’s Own Steven Bradbury winning gold, gold, gold at Salt Lake City in 2002.
Update: Bonus awesomeness – Alisa Camplin’s gold-medal-winning final jump in the 2002 aerials final.
Update 2: Oh, hey, Bikini Curling.
