Short track is a pure tactical sport.

The thing I can't understand with short track is why the competitors jump up and down and start waving their flag as soon as they've crossed the line and think they've won. They end up looking silly after the race is reviewed and they are disqualified, which seems to happen at least half the time. It should be like figure skating: You finish your routine, then wait anxiously on the sidelines for the judges' decision.
