Elizabeth Swaney Is The Worst Olympian Ever
Elizabeth Swaney of Team Hungary is arguably the worst Olympian ever for both summer and winter Olympics. She "competed" this year in the skiing half pipe coming in last place but to her credit she didn't fall!
Now is she the worst Olympian ever or just showing the world how to work smarter not harder... I'm going to say both. To qualify for the Olympics you have to compete and finish in the Top 30 for world events and she was able to do this mostly by not falling. Swaney while being born American and living in California was able to ski for the Hungarian team because of her grandparents birth country and she paid her way through the qualifications mostly by online donations.
She was able to find a loophole that allowed her to live out a dream of competing in the olympics. And while the best finish she ever had was 13th out of 15 she has done something the majority of the world will never be able to experience. The Canadian Gold Medalist in the same event as Elizabeth told the CBC, "If you are going to put in the time and effort to be here, then you deserve to be here as much as I do."
