Grieg’s Sochi Spirit
Daniel Greig has experienced a fall in the 500m Men’s Speed Skating event in Sochi, but one fall will not slow him down. Daniel has shown his true spirit by deciding to finish the race, celebrating friend and 500m gold medallist Michel Mulder from the Netherlands and focusing on the 1000m Men’s Speed Skating event taking place on day five of the games, Wednesday, February 12th.
“I was always going to finish the race. If you decide to pull out it is disrespectful to your other competitors. If no one finishes the race when something doesn’t go right, there wouldn’t be anyone left.”
Daniel Grieg - Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics
The games are broadcast on channel 10 from 8.30pm AEDT with the 1000m men’s speed skating at approximately 1am.
