It's called class

Eight years ago Canadian cross country skier Sarah Renner won a silver medal because a Norwegian coach threw her a pole during the race.  And, as it turned out, Norway came fourth in that race.

Today, Canadian coach Justin Wadsworth ran onto the course with a spare ski to help a Russian skier finish the cross country course in front of the Russian fans.

Sometimes the Olympics really are.

A good story, the Canadian coach is actually an American. Nice to see sportsmanship.
