*Well damn. Everybody can’t be first! Clearly Women’s Hockey Player, Jocelyne Larocque (that’s her pictured 2nd to left above), never got the memo. When the presentation ceremony presented medals to her and other Olympians just after the U.S. Women’s Hockey team kicked ass and took the Gold on South Korea, the disappointed Canadian player couldn’t get that 2nd Place Silver Medal off of her neck fast enough.
Custom has both sides being presented with medals after the game — American players with gold and Canadian players with silver.
Some may call it a spontaneous act of frustration, but others think it was down right disrespectful.
Twitter went nuts!
How disrespectful could you be to take off your olympic medal during the medal ceremony? What the actual fuck @ Canada.–El Hockey Boy, Matthew “LilCutt” Honeycutt@ElRojoBlanco28
Everyone who ripped that Swedish kid for ditching his silver medal better be giving Jocelyne Larocque hell too. —Tyson Hinschberger@hinschcity
…are just a handful of the reactions.
Poor sportsmanship, much?
