Apparently from soup to nuts!
In the 2002 winter Olympic games, Steven John Bradbury, an Australian track speed skater, was passed his peak. He was already 29 and knew it was his last shot at an Olympic medal.
In the quarter-finals, Bradbury finished third and was supposed to be eliminated. But, since another runner was disqualified he advanced to the semi-finals.
In his semi-final race, he was about to finish last when force major intervened and three top competitors crashed, paving his way into the first place.
In the finals, he was well behind when all his competitors crashed out at the final corner. He avoided the pile-up and won the gold medal.
I’m not superstitious man, but this series of incidents – makes you wonder plane luck or really good Voodoo work…
