Oops no, on your front. On what looks like a tea tray.

Ah! Thanks for clarifying that. So when all your skin gets ripped off, you become a skeleton? :wink:

Sven Kramer won the golden medal for 5000m speed skating last week and Thursday Annette Gerritsen and Laurine van Riessen won silver and bronze for the 1000meter speed skating. I think that´s it for the Dutch medals :P

After seeing the British guy's friction burns on his back after crashing in the two-man Bobsleigh event, I'd say that pretty well sums it up. And just for Tony to know what I'm talking about, See here for the event. :wink: You just know that that's going to hurt in the morning! :o At least both were not seriously hurt. :D
