Short Track Speed Skating at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

383000 tweets already in Korean with Choi's name... yeah I'd be upset too, Boutin shouldn't have been in the final regardless

 

China's also extremely upset with the DQ to Han to advance the Korean

 

Some not great judging today

The short track giveth and the short track takes away. I love the sport, but in the end it sucks to have any medal favourites because there are so many ways for things to go wrong.

I dunno, it looked like Choi interfered with Boutin.  My feed wasn't the greatest, but I don't think it was a terrible call.  Actually, I thought Christie did some interfering, but I have to take another look at the race.

 

In any event, congratulations to Arianna!  Finally a gold for her!

I watched race now on Eurosport and Canadian and British girls deserved DSQ. A girl from Canada has pushed Choi and that was so obvious.

But on the other side Choi pushed her before that as well. So maybe this was ok at the end.

Almost everyone in the final deserved to be disqualified for something

My final prediction put it at 16-17 (16,7 to be exact), but yeah...so far that's gonna be pretty much broken :p

That was too much, penalty incoming. 

I love the indignation from Sjinke, he’a a great skater but he seems to have a rather... agressive personality xD

All three Koreans in Q1 of the men's 1000m.  There goes their hope to sweep.  :d

 

On the bright side, they're guaranteed at least one to the semi-finals.

I just saw the race... Kim ran into Boutin's lane causing her dq. It was 100% justified.

Yeah he's not someone who keeps his cool easily :d 

 

I mean, in a race, he definitely can, but his reactions...nah. Example of keeping his cool in a race: even at this Olympics half the field went down but he stayed perfectly calm, barely moved and escaped without trouble.
