Short track speedskating: Ohno cut off at pass, places third in 1,500
Cody Brunner - The Salt Lake Tribune -

[...]But Ho-Suk Lee cut Ohno off on the final straightaway and the veteran pulled up to avoid a disqualification. Ohno had to settle on a third place finish [...] "I don't want to complain about the referee because that wouldn't do anything," said Jae Su Chun, who coaches Ohno. "That kind of move is a strategy that the Korean and Chinese use often."
