Anastasiya Kuzmina, Slovakia  - Sore losers and hysterical winners react at Sochi Winter Olympic Games | Sochi Olympic Fails | Scoop.it
If this is what Slovakia's Anastasiya Kuzmina looks like when she wins, we dread to think what she looks like when she loses! The 29-year-old athlete looked distressed despite coming in first in the women's biathlon 7.5km spring event on Feb. 9, 2014.
