The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi are right around the corner and everyone is starting to pay attention to those sports. For instance, there was a speed skating event ahead of the Olympics and it had an interesting and epic finish.

The second place skater wasn’t fond of the first place finisher and decided to let his feelings be known with a double fingered salute. It was all caught on camera as well.

In case you were wondering who the skaters are it is Victor An and the skater flipping the double birds is Sjinkie Knegt.

 

Needless to say I’m sure he made his country proud with this moment. To be perfectly honest it kind of looks like An is flipping a double bird too, though I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt that he is point towards the sky.

[UPDATE:] Here is video of the event.
