Japanese speed skater Nana Takagi was inconsolable after her fall before the finish line of the women's team pursuit final at the Beijing Olympics that cost the country a gold medal, but her sister and teammate Miho was there for support.

Nana was seen crying uncontrollably after the race while her sister Miho hugged her. She was still wiping away tears when standing on the podium, eventually leaning on her younger sister's shoulder and tearing up again.

"I couldn't find any words to tell her at that moment. I just wanted to be close to her and give her a hug," Miho said.
