Sweden’s Lias Andersson Doesn’t Play For Second Place, Throws Silver Medal Into Stands


If you aren’t first, you’re last. It looks like Sweden captain Lias Andersson lives by the Ricky Bobby motto.

On Friday night after the Swedish team suffered 3-1 loss to Canada in the world junior championships, the team was presented with their silver medals for the tournament.

Andersson wasn’t happy with the second place finish, so he wanted nothing to do with the runner-up medal.

After Andersson had the silver medal placed around his neck, he immediately pulled it off, skated away and tossed it into the stands where one lucky fan was able to come away with a nice souvenir.

The fan who caught the medal was seemingly a fan of everyone in the tournament.

Andersson explained his decision to throw the medal into the crowd with a pretty simple and flawless reason.

Andersson finished the tournament with six goals and an assist. He was a first-round pick of the New York Rangers in the 2017 draft, so Rangers fans can know they are getting a player who has a competitive spirit and winning mentality.
