Every time the Olympics roll around we’re guaranteed to see some pretty remarkable performances, and the 2014 Winter Olympics are certainly no different. However, in addition to the great performances by legendary Olympians, your pretty much also guaranteed some really terrible performances by really terrible Olympians. And that’s what we’re going to focus on today: the world’s worst Winter Olympians.
Now, I should begin by saying that, in a certain sense, many of the athletes on this list are truly great Olympians. Some of them dreamed an impossible dream and made it a reality through hard work and dedication, and stories like that are always inspiring. On the other hand, in terms of pure athletic ability, these people just are not that good compared to the men and women they competed or will complete against.
So that’s what I mean by “worst”—remarkable human beings as such, unremarkable human beings as athletes.
Let’s dig in, shall we?
