Surprise Streak, Surprise Gold For The Greeks!
After the incident, blunders by the American, Russian, and Chinese teams led to Nikolaos Siranidis and Thomas Bimis of Greece winning the gold medal. The three countries were ahead of the Greeks in the event before their miscues in the last round.
The streaker turned out to be Ron Bensimhon, the same man that appeared at the World Figure Skating Championships in Germany this past March. According to Bensimhon's lawyer, the tutu-clad streaker loved the rush he received from the skating event, and decided the Olympics would be the ultimate stage for him, providing even more notoriety, fame, and adrenaline-fueled excitement.
A devoted fan of the casino, Bensimhon had 'GoldenPalace.com' tattooed on his torso to prove that he could accomplish this feat, perhaps in the hopes that he can be useful to the site for future events.
Regardless of Bensimhon's motives, his performance may well have allowed Greek fans everywhere to celebrate the first win of a coveted gold medal.

I saw this live when it happened at the olympics. I thought it was a riot! There was a lot of negative coverage after the fact, but when you look back, pretty much everybody's first reaction was to laugh! Keep up the good work!

Heh... I met these guys when I was stranded at the Amsterdam Airport for about 25 hours... had a drink and a smoke with them... I think this was his proudest moment streaking at the olympics... He said the security beat him so bad after he was in the hospital for 2 days... but it was worth it... wish the video was here would love to see it... I don't think he is Canadian btw...
