Accidents Will Happen.
Speed skater Steven Bradbury won Australia's first Winter Olympics gold medal in one of the most bizarre races in Games history.

Competing in his fourth Olympics, the 28-year-old from Brisbane won the men's 1,000m short track here tonight when all of the other four skaters in the final fell on the last corner.

"I played the same tactics in the semi-final and final, which was to stick at the back of the field and wait for the accidents to happen and they did," he said.
