Sochi 2014: Canadian ski coach helps Russian athlete

Justin Wadsworth, the head coach of the Canadian team, ran onto the course Tuesday to help Russian skier Anton Gafarov, at the 2014 Winter Olympics which are held in Sochi, Russia.

Gafarov had fallen and broken a ski during the men’s cross-country sprint.

The base of Anton Gafarov's left ski had come off. So, Wadsworth helped him take out the broken ski and gave him a spare one.  

As a result, Gafarov finished last in his final run and applauded the fans for cheering him to the end, The Globe and Mail reports.
