What an awesome act of sportsmanship:

(FYI: There is a competition spoiler. Thanks Cherub721 for the heads - up)

From what I understand they are good friends who train together in the summer. Way to go Rudi !

That's really cool! More importantly, he's cute. ;)

BTW, you may want to edit your post to say that there's a 4CC spoiler in it. No biggie though.

He must have really had to hustle to get backstage in order to give him his boots and enough time to get into them to meet the 3 minute deadline.

Did he hand over the skate backstage? Or did he run down in the stands and pass them to the coach or over the boards?

:respec: to Swiegers!

Go Rudi! I actually L/S a lot...I was REALLY afraid that she was going to get stuck in Japan (at least it was a simple clearance thing).

The stock is rising for this team every single day. They have been on the fringes nationally for the past few years but have taken a giant step forward to be among the Canadian elite pair teams.
I wish them a medal at 4CC and a great off season of training.

What a great thing to do. This is another reason why I love my sport. Way to go Rudi.

Maybe fortune will smile on us on the LP and someone will rip and destroy their pants (and then some hero will swoop in and...) :shuffle:

Mark Ladwig posted the following message at Facebook:

Rudi SWIEGERS you are my HERO, Thank you for dashing down from the stands, to hand me your skate to complete my short program. Without that we'd be either disqualified or have 10 points. You were an Angel tonight!
