Dutch short track women win bronze in relay
The Netherlands' women short track skating team won bronze in the relay at the Winter Olympics in South Korea on Tuesday. The Dutch team won the B-final, but still managed to snatch bronze in the A-final due to Canada and China being disqualified, NOS reports.
The team consisted of Jorien ter Mors, Yara van Kerkhof, Suzanne Shculting and Lara van Ruijven. They broke a world record in the B-final wit a time of 4:03:471, according to the broadcaster.
The winner of the B-final always has a chance of wining a medal if at least wo countries are disqualified in the A-final, though this does not happen very often. When both Canada and China got a penalty in the A-final, the Dutch team moved up from fifth place to third.
South Korea won gold in this hectic final. Silver went to Italy.
