"I had to do two inside passes and one outside during the race," said Charles Hamelin. "Near the end, I passed my brother on the inside, he was second and I was third. I then tried to plan a move on the Korean in the last lap, but I lost my balance a bit in the last corner so I couldn't fight for the finish."

"We would have liked to win the silver," said Hamelin. "There was a lot of action, a lot of passes, many touches too, we were second at the end, but China passed us in the last corner, so it's a bit disappointing, but overall it was a good race."Reutter of U.S. wins short track gold
