    Snapped: The moment Steven Bradbury skated to Olympic immortality

    Celebrated sports photographer Clive Mason is forever grateful that, as a junior member of Getty Images’ Olympic team, he was shunted out to the fourth-choice position for the short track speed skating 1,000m final at the Salt Lake City 2002 Games.

    Wizard of Oz Bradbury’s magic moment

    Australia’s Steven Bradbury arrived in Salt Lake City as a relatively unheralded athlete, but left as one of the Games’ stars.

    The most unexpected of gold medals

    Coming into the five-man final, Steven Bradbury was the rank outsider and as the race progressed his chances looked slimmer with each passing lap. But as the leading quartet rounded the final bend, Lia Jiajun (CHN) tried an over-ambitious overtaking manoeuvre outside Apollo Ohno (USA), sending them both onto the ice and bringing down Mathieu Turcotte (CAN) and Ahn Hyun-soo (KOR) in the process. This left the way clear for a nonplussed Bradbury to cross the line unchallenged and claim the most unexpected of gold medals.
