So many different angles to strategy and so many different ways to approach the physical aspect of the sport.
Yeah, I freakin' love short track. It was great watching Ohno last night.
There's never a dull moment as the skaters can go from last to first in 1 lap. The relays especially are insane. I don't know how they can ever get through a race without half of the teams crashing.
And why the hell is Korea so good?
I truly think size can play a significant role for a short track skater. Being so tiny can lead to some key advantages since the track is short (the short track almost voids the power and speed a bigger skater could generate).
I'm no Nascar fan but I imagine short track skating is akin to Nascar racing at a short track.
