You may recall from THIS recent story that the Dutch Speed Skater Sven Kramer certainly seems to have a short fuse.
When asked to say his name by an ABC Olympics reporter the Dutch skating super star threw a pretty Olympic sized temper tantrum by asking the reporter if she was stupid. The reporters question and Kramer's response sparked an international debate about the ignorance of Americans, as well as the ignorance of the America media.

In another display of angry temper today, Kramer hurled his sunglasses away in disgust when he was told by his coach that he had been DQ from the 10,000 meter final.
Kramer had made an amateurish mistake, he failed to switch lanes just about at the halfway point of the race, and was thus disqualified.
Had he not been disqualified the World record holding speed skater would have easily won the gold medal at the 10,00 meter event.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald:
"Kramer finished about four seconds ahead of Lee, but it didn't matter. The South Korean already was celebrating on the infield while the Dutch world-record holder was finishing his race, apparently unaware of what he had done.
When Kramer came across the line, he threw up his arms to celebrate what he thought was his second gold medal of the Vancouver Games. Then, as he was coasting along on the backstretch, the victory celebration suddenly ended.
Dutch coach Gerard Kemkers told the skater what he had done. Kramer reacted with disbelief, then slung away his glasses in disgust."
