Well, it wasn't really fast

February 14, 1992

ALBERTVILLE, France (AP) -- Bajro Cenanovic of Yugoslavia finished last in the men's 5,000 speedskating yesterday -- a full 45 seconds behind the next finisher.

Cenavanovic was lapped by one skater, and became something of a crowd darling as he completed his cool-down laps.

He got husge ovations from the big contigents of Dutch and Norwegian fans, and some fans even started singing for him.

A good-nature Cenanovic waved to the crowd, and one of the fans threw a doll on the ice to the latest Olympic anti-hero.
