CONGRATULATIONS LEE JUNG-SU FOR YOUR SECOND GOLD MEDAL FOR THE SHORT TRACK 1000M AND TO LEE HO-SUK FOR THE SILVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(as usual Apolo gave ZERO credit to the Koreans in the post-race NBC interview, he kept on making excuses and said that he should have won the race even though he was clearly OUTCLASSED, such a despicable "athlete". )
our overhyped canadian men chokes big time, as usual
Okay, I seriously think Korea wuzrobbed in women's relay.
Well done,judges in women's relay!
That said, S. Korea got the gold medal from 10,000m from a DQ, so I don't think they should make that big of a deal out of this.

Oh, well, it was funny to see different versions of analysis from each side.
TV commentator says it "might" be the blades, the referees "notifies" it's the physical contact, a chinese skater "guess" there was a foul and the Korean who made the foul "cries out" she didn't do anything wrong.
That's the sport.

Why so much hate on this topic? I love how all the controversies are always from short track.
Anyways, I agree that the DQ in the women's relay was questionable. I think that the Korean ladies should have taken it.
Then again, the Korean skater won the 10,000m with a DQ from Sven Kramer, who was amazing but didn't cross over. It must suck to lose the gold, let alone any other medal because he listened to his coach, who was dead wrong about the crossovers. But he made a huge mistake, so the DQ was justified I believe, along with every sports analysts. I find it impressive how the Lee Seung Hoon is skating in the long track team for only seven months and won silver and gold after he failed to make the national short track team.
As for Apollo, he is a great skater, but when he wins his medals he should be more gracious to his competitors and not say things like he would have had this happened or had he not pushed me. It just gives the Koreans more reason to hate him. I miss Ahn Hyun Soo. He is undoubtedly the greatest skater in the history of the sport.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to tomorrow night. It'll be exciting for short track.
Sorry, it definitely could not have gone the other way. The only reason the Chinese racer lost her pace is because her skates clicked with Min Jung's. That's not the Korean racers fault. I suggest you take a look at the slo-mo, if you don't believe me or some news articles on the internet that come to the same conclusion.

Well, it seems Apolo can get disqualified for tapping someone just like everyone else. Meanwhile Joannie's ex-boyfriend gets a bronze!
Looking forward to the relay tonight. If nothing else, the visuals should be fun.
Canada wins gold in the relay too!! 4 Medals again today - 2 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze. We are now in the lead for gold medals with TEN! Way to go Canada!
