John-Henry Krueger wins short-track silver, ends USA medal drought


The Canadian set a time of 1 minute, 24.650 in the Gangneung Ice Arena ahead of Team USA's John-Henry Krueger's 1:24.864.

Liu Shaolin Sandor of Hungary crashed in the turn with a lap to go, taking out Lim Hyo-jun of South Korea.

Canadian Samuel Girard yelled and signaled No. 1 with both index fingers as he crossed the finish line first. The 33-year-old was thinking the same thing, and thought both he and Girard would be in position to advance until some contact with Seo left the Canadians staring up at the board, waiting for the referees to determine their fates. We'll see but I just don't think I'm done. That's what the referees saw on the replay.

"This is the best Olympic experience out of the three, because I was in control", he said.

Going from disappointment to opportunity in an instant, Girard needed a mental reset and coach Derrick Campbell and team psychologist Fabien Abejean helped provide one.

"It's an emotion that you can't really describe", Girard said. Seo finished third, but was 6.969 seconds faster than Seo and 8.662 seconds faster than Lim, who was in fourth place.

"There is just too much traffic and stuff that can go down if you stay in the back, so we both stayed up in the front and it paid off for both of us", Krueger said.

"I'm really happy he was on the edge of the ice to share that with me", he said of Hamelin.

Dominik Kubalik and Michal Jordan scored in regulation time for the Czechs, who edged South Korea 2-1 in their opener. One guy passed me and I went right back right away. "He's one of the best in the world in the sport and he's the ideal mentor for Sam". "We were ready to do a great race in the semis", said Hamelin.
