Crazy Moments In Winter Olympic History

By John Dodge

CHICAGO (CBS) Citius, Altius, Fortius.

That’s the Olympic motto in Latin, which means Faster, Higher, Stronger.

Then there is delirus.

That means crazy or insane or senseless.

There have been plenty that in the Winter Olympics, too.

So far in Sochi, it has to do with poor accommodations, like dangerous water, or, barracks-style beds for world-class professional hockey players, and weird bathroom etiquette.

Here are a few of the more memorable, if not bizarre, moments from Olympics past:

1) Never Show Off When A Gold Medal Is In Your Grasp

2) Venezuelan Face Plant

3) Short Track Come-From-Behind Victory

4) Slalom Double Take
