Speed Skater Ryan Bedford Hair Photos: Prank by Chad Hedrick
Long-track Speed Skating United States team member Ryan Bedford has an interesting new haircut for the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.
The young speed skater was the victim of a prank by teammate Chad Hedrick, a veteran of the Olympic Winter Games, when Hedrick suggested that both he and Bedford dye and shave their hair to resmeble the Amercian flag. See photos on Yahoo! Sports of Ryan Bedford's new haircut.
According to Yahoo! Sports, Chad Hedrick planned to dye and shave his head too but backed out after seeing how Ryan Bedford's hair turned out. Bedford says he was the victim of a prank:
"Chad is one of the senior guys on the team, so he can get away with it," said Bedford. "We were joking around last night and he said: 'Let's do something crazy.'
Bedford now laments that he is the only one that gets to look weird, while Hedrick retains his normal hair.
