North Korean skater, disqualified after falling in Olympic pre-heat; some onlookers claim dirty tactics

North Korean skater Jong Kwang Bom was disqualified for pushing a competitor when he fell twice onto the ice during an Olympic pre-heat, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Some onlookers claimed he may have been trying to cause fellow skater Ryosuke Sakazume from Japan to fall as well. Sakazume said the accident was a coincidence. “I believe it was unintentional,” Sakazume told the outlet. “His hand happened to be by my skate as he fell down.”
