I know. I keep sharing non related Idaho moments at this year's Olympics. That's mainly because the events I have tickets for, don't have any Idaho athletes. Still it's the Olympics and gosh darn it (yes I just said gosh darn it), speed skating is plain cool or what Canadian snowboarders here say "sick." So below you'll find photos and captions from Tuesday's 500 meter women's speed skating race. South Korea's Lee Sang-hwa won gold at the Richmond Olympic Oval. She becomes the first Asian woman to win an Olympic speed skating event. Sang-hwa burst into tears after she realized she won. There were plenty of fans from Korea in the stands to cheer her on.
