Monday night Long-track speedskater Ryan Bedford and older teammate Chad Hedrick devised a plan of action: to shave and dye each otherâs hair so both of their hair styles would resemble American flags.
âWe were joking around last night and he said: âLetâs do something crazy,ââ said Bedford.
Bedford was the guinea pig and went first. Right after Bedfordâs outcome, Hedrick backed out after seeing the bizarre results of Bedfordâs follicle surgery.

âChad is one of the senior guys on the team, so he can get away with it,â said Bedford. âHe came up with the idea of the shave. We werenât really thinking that it would end up like this. Iâm the one who gets to look weird.â
The 23-year-old Bedford, from Holland, Michigan finished 12th in the 10,000 meter event on Tuesday.
