Viktor An has thanked the Sochi crowd for the immense support at the arena.

      According to Sovetsky Sport, he picked up the Russian banner with the word ‘Spasibo’ (Thank you) in a token of appreciation for the emotional support.

      “It was the first time in my life when I was so cheered by the whole arena,” he told the Russian sports newspaper.

      Earlier, the Korean-born athlete, who has become a six-time Olympic champion, said the 2014 Sochi Olympics were the best Games in his career.

      Once a three-time champion in his home country, he was put on the bench after an injury, a move which is believed to have deeply offended him. He then moved to Russia to prepare for the Sochi Games. You can ready our in-depth report about his career here.

      According to An, the gold in the team relay was especially important because this race crowns all the events in the short track. He was inspired by the first gold he won earlier, he added. His rivals were strong, but that only pushed more adrenaline to his head, he was quoted as saying. An is proud to have raised the level of short track to an Olympic level.
