Dutch speed skater Sjinkie Knegt fires off double middle fingers at rival

Dutch speed skater Sjinkie Knegt was none too happy about his team’s 3rd place finish in the men’s 5000m relay at the European Short Track Championships in Dresden. As Knegt crossed the finish line he fired off a double middle finger salute to rival skater Viktor Ahn, whose Russian team captured the gold medal in the event…

If you’re going to lose a bronze medal, may as well make it worthwhile. Also it’s apparent that Sjinkie Knegt isn’t the Dutch term for sportsmanship.

    classic dutch poor sportsmanship. If they aren’t quarreling with their own teammattes (Dutch Football team EVERY year) they are extremely poor losers. This douchebag reminds us of that…also the douche from Vancouver Olympics Sven Kramer who had a tantrum when he skated in the wrong lane….just sore losers all around
