US speedskaters bring the fun with medal ceremony hijinks

The US speedskaters finally broke their Sochi Winter Olympics drought by earning a silver medal in the men’s 5,000-meter short track relay. 

And it’s a good thing, ’cause otherwise we would have missed this charming show of American spirit by Eddy Alvarez, J.R. Celski, Chris Creveling, and Jordan Malone at the medal ceremony. 

Malone hinted on his Instagram account that something was in the works right before the hardware was given out. 

Turns out the US speedskating team’s got jokes — who knew? Here’s a sampling of what they did. 

Alvarez, Celski, Crevling, and Malone take a seat. 

All together now…

…and scene.

Kind of like the Three Amigos, no?
