Bobsledder reacts to fourth place with sly middle finger

Classic fourth-place face.

Russia-1 cruised to first place in two-man bobsled competition on Monday. Russia-2? Heartbreak.

Alexander Kasjanov raced in Russia's second sled, which finished just 0.03 seconds behind the bronze-winning U.S. team that captured America's first bobsled medal in 62 years. Cruel.

So forgive him if that fraction of a second has him a little upset. Fourth Place, as you can see in this neat NYT interactive, is pretty much the worst.
