Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

The short track speed skating programme at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) ended with a mixed National Olympic Committee (NOC) team relay.

The 3000 metre race is run in a rolling format, there is no set rule as to how many laps must be completed in each leg. The only rule being that the last two laps have to be skated by the same skater. Consequently, there could be as many as 8 different handoffs in a single race.

It was won by athletes competing for ‘Team B’. The Republic of Korea’s Chanseo Kim, 17, who won the silver medal in the women’s 1,000m, 16-year-old Shogo Miyata from Japan, 17-year-old American Jonathan So and Diede Van Oorschot, 16, from the Netherlands.

Because the tournament was classified as a mixed National Olympic Committee (NOC) event, the Olympic flag was raised in all three positions at the medal ceremony.
