Holey Moley's Celebrity Special sees Steven Bradbury again claim victory — by default

Holey Moley's Celebrity Special sees Steven Bradbury again claim victory — by default

Nearly 20 years after he won an Olympic gold medal by staying on his feet after his competitors took a fall, Steven Bradbury has done it again.

The former speed skater appeared as a contestant on Seven’s Holey Moley Celebrity Special tonight, where he teed off against veteran and much-loved TV presenter Denise ‘Ding Dong’ Drysdale.

Despite saying golf was a game that doesn’t come naturally to him, he managed to come out with a win in the round after Drysdale took a bad fall while chasing after one of the show’s gopher mascots on the Frankenputt hole.

The accident was shown in full, with Drysdale immediately screaming out in pain realising she had badly hurt her shoulder.

Paramedics quickly raced onto the course to assist the 72-year-old, who was wheeled off the course and had to withdraw from the competition.

The victory was then handed over to Bradbury by default.

He eventually made it into the final round, but was beaten by former AFL star Barry Hall , who took out the contest.

Last month, Drysdale revealed she had suffered a fractured shoulder during the incident, but that she was on the road to recovery.

The final episode of Holey Moley will air tomorrow at 7.30pm on Seven, with a batch of kids hitting the course to try their luck.
