Germany’s Patrick Beckert was fourth on the list of replacement entrants for the men’s 1,000-meter competition, and after two-time gold medallist Enrico Fabris withdrew from Wednesday’s race an hour before it was due to start, organizers began to frantically get hold of the 19 year old.
Unfortunately, by the time Beckert had noticed one of the many missed calls on his phone, there was only 17 minutes left until the race was scheduled to begin. This wasn’t enough time for him to reach the the Oval from the Olympic village, so his place was forfeited. Talk about bad luck.
