Page 2 staff

Short-track speedskating is fraught with collisions, but Page 2 wanted to find out if there was another, more sinister cause of the crash Saturday night that cost U.S. favorite Apolo Anton Ohno a gold medal in the 1,000-meter final.

The collision sent, from left, Ohno, South Korea's Ahn Hyun-soo, Canada's Mathieu Turcotte and China's Li Jiajun crashing into the wall. Ohno managed to scramble back to claim the silver after Australia's Steven Bradbury, who trailed the pack by so much that he escaped the crash, "earned" the gold.

Li was disqualified from the race, and later, Page 2 was able to uncover some shocking underhanded tactics employed by the Chinese skater. Click here to find out more.
