Is this the worst moment of bad sportsmanship?
COULD this be one of the worst examples of bad sportsmanship ever witnessed?
That's the question sports fans have been asking after North Korean teen speed skater Jong Kwang-bom seemed to intentionally bring down a rival during the 500m short track event at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The 16-year-old was preparing for his heat when his foot slipped and he tumbled towards the ice.
But instead of taking a dose of humility and living up to his mistake, Jong threw out his arm and seemingly attempted to bring down his closest rival, Japanese competitor Keita Watanabe.
Is this worst moment of bad sportsmanship you've ever seen?
This poll ended on 21 February 2019.
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
Races can be restarted if too many competitors are hampered by a chaotic kickoff.
But despite Watanabe keeping his balance, Jong got his wish with officials calling his rivals back for a restart.
However, his second attempt at keeping his feet didn't yield a better result after again colliding with Watanabe and crashing into the wall.
And, if the outrage from sports fans is anything to go by, it was just what Jong deserved.
