Australia's Steven Bradbury achieved an unexpected gold medal in the short track speed skating event, taking advantage of a mistake causing his fellow finalists to fall at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympic Games. Coming into the five-man final, Steven Bradbury was the outsider. With each passing lap Bradbury’s chances looked slimmer and slimmer of ever reaching a medal. But as the leading skater rounded the final bend, Lia Jiajun tried an over-ambitious maneuver outside skater Apollo Ohno which sent them both into the ice. This also brought down skaters Mathieu Turcotte and Ahn Hyun-soo in the process. This left the way clear for Bradbury to cross the line unchallenged and claim the most unexpected of gold medals.
