GOLDEN HEIDEN SKATES INTO HISTORY

Speed skater Eric Heiden would have finished third in the medal table at Lake Placid 1980 had he been a country, such was his success. His five individual gold medals - an Olympic Winter Games record - would have put him behind the Soviet Union and Germany, as the USA's gold-medal haul would have dropped from six to one.
