Girard avoids chaos to claim gold in men's 1000m short track

Samuel Girard celebrates his gold medal in the men's 1,000 metres at the Pyeongchang Olympics on Feb

John-Henry Krueger, a 22-year-old Pittsburgh native, won the men's 500m, 1000m, 1500m and overall title at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials to qualify for his first Olympics.

In the first short-track event of the games, Krueger was penalized in the semifinals of the 1,500. Girard won in a time of 1:24.650. Girard and Krueger sprinted to the finish, with the Canadian keeping his lead. "After that I was just thinking about my race and what I had to do. He made the referees look at the video replay". "It is what it is".

After finding out the results, Girard hugged his coach Derrick Campbell before returning to the centre of the ice with a big smile.

"He would have loved to have this medal here, but he's happy that I'm the one who has it", Girard said.

"It's an emotion that you can't really describe", Girard said.

"There were so many thoughts rushing through my head", Krueger said.

Egypt winger Ahmed Elmohamady has urged global teammate Mohamed Salah to spend "another season at Liverpool at least". Firmino then scored himself with 20 minutes left in the game, getting on the end of a James Milner cross.

"I don't know that much about the Olympics like the village and all that stuff", Hamelin noted.

Girard's victory comes at a point of transition for the short-track program, with Hamelin and his fiancée Marianne St-Gelais both saying Pyeongchang are their last Olympics.

The U.S. men's relay team won silver at the 2014 Olympics for Team USA's only speedskating medal of those Games.

The first couple of short-track, with seven Olympic medals between them, have so far been shutout.

"Charles played a huge role for him", Campbell said. "He worked so hard for me to be what I am right now".

"It goes to show you any given day there are a number of guys who can win". "We were ready to do a great race in the semis", said Hamelin.
