Skater Barton Lui takes heat for lame excuses over Sochi failure
(02-12 14:53)

Hong Kong speed skater Barton Lui Pan-to who crashed out of the heats in the 1,500 meter contest in Sochi came under fire today for complaining about officials to deflect criticisms of his failure.
Team officials have disputed his claims about the lack of a doctor and rounded on him for making excuses for his early exit from the Winter Games in Russia. The 20-year-old ended fifth out of six contestants at the 1,500m short track speed skating on Sunday.
He complained that there was no team doctor to treat his muscle aches and pains after a lot of training.
On his return to Hong Kong today, he backtracked saying the issue was not the most important thing.
