John-Henry Krueger wins silver in 1000-meter short-track speedskating

GANGENUNG, KOREA, REPUBLIC OF-Canada's Samuel Girard has won gold in men's 1,000-metre short-track speedskating at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.

The 22-year-old Ledecka, who is also a snowboarder, stopped the clock in one minute 21.11 seconds to upend defending champion Anna Veith of Austria, who finished second.

With a crash taking out three of five skaters as the pack entered the final lap, Girard held off John-Henry Krueger of the United States, who took the silver while South Korea's world champion Seo Yira was quickest to get to his feet to secure a bronze. But that was the last time an American won a medal at the Games with events since that have seen disappointing finishes from medal favorites Shiffrin and Lindsey Vonn on the slopes and Nathan Chen on the ice.

"Just before the race he came to me and said "let's go, you can do this", smiled Girard. She originally finished fourth in the race, but was promoted to third when Choi was disqualified for interfering with the Canadian.

Chan was sixth in Friday's short program after he fell on his triple Axel. "It's too bad because I had the legs to do better". "I was not dying out of breath". Kim Lamarre, the bronze medallist four years ago in Sochi, Russia, was 22nd.

"My dad is going to kill me".

"There were so many thoughts rushing through my head", Krueger said. "I think every Olympics is a different experience and you learn so much along the way". I think it wasn't the thing to do at that moment. Noreau actually beat goalie Pavel Francouz with Canada's final shot but the puck bounced off the goalpost.

Koe, 43, is throwing 84 per cent in the tournament and is pleased with the 4-1 performance of his Calgary-based team, which will try to rebound against Switzerland on Saturday at 7:05 p.m. ET. Homan's crushing of the USA followed three straight losses, a performance that few had anticipated from a team that was heavily favoured to win the gold.

"Charles played a huge role for him", Campbell said. "And learning from those mistakes moving forward I think was the key to today".

Also Saturday, Calgary's Elisabeth Vathje was ninth in women's skeleton. The Swedes stole three points and improved their record to 5-0 in South Korea.

Fellow Canadians Jane Channell (3:29.07) and Mirela Rahneva (3:29.52) finished 10th and 12th, respectively.
