“I just patted him on the cheek and wished good luck. My wish came in handy – Johannes became the winner.” –Sergey Ustiugov
Russian cross country skier Sergey Ustiugov got dq’d after the semi-final sprint race at the World Championships in Seefeld, Austria for playing patty cakes on a Norwegian racer’s face cheeks. Sergey played off the contact as congratulatory but race officials didn’t see it that way and he was disqualified. The Norwegian racer Johannes Klaebo wasn’t too shaken by the act of dominance and is looking forward to the rematch this weekend:
“I understood that Sergei is furious, he is now in good shape, and I am sure that on Saturday there will be a good fight.”
Grudge match set for Saturday…lets hope they keep it clean and don’t escalate to wet willies or tity twisters.
