In the 2002 Winter Olympics, short track speed skater Steven Bradbury was coming a solid last in the finals of the 1000 metre race. The pack was well ahead, skating their way to eternal glory in the worldwide skating community comprised of literally tens of people. Anyway, Steven was set for last place, but he held on.
Then, the entire pack went down. In one fell swoop, Bradbury steamed ahead through the human debris, claiming a come-from-behind victory that would’ve, should’ve, seen him turned into a viral meme, had it not been that it was the 2002 and the internet did not yet exist.
What are we saying? What does this mean? It means that you, person who hasn’t even entered into the 2018 MC Photo Comp yet, can submit your best shots with mere days until entries close and claim your rightful place as winner of the Travel, Portrait, Lifestyle, Action, Music or Student category. A last-minute victory tastes pretty damn sweet.
