A really long track

The ice rink must've seemed like a lonely place for superstar Dutch speed skater Sven Kramer after he was disqualified for an illegal lane change during the men's 10,000-meter competition. Kramer actually made the right move, but it was his coach, Gerard Kemkers, who told him to change lanes thinking that his skater had veered off course. Speed skating is a favorite among the Netherland faithful, so as Bob Costas mentioned during a broadcast, if there's a witness protection program in the country, Kemkers should apply.
