FIVE GOLDS

The triumphant of this Olympics was Eric Heiden — the American speed skater. Unique achievement. Five gold medals. He won on all distances starting from sprint upto long-distance running. The truly unique event in history of sports, when one man alone took the third place in a team table, right after USSR and GDR.
