Seo Yi-Ra was the fastest person to get up from the crash in the final and took bronze, South Korea's fifth medal of the Games.

Lim Hyo-Jun, Shaolin Sandor Liu, Seo, Girard, and Krueger made up the final.

He just keeps on navigating his way through the first of what should be many Games short track tournaments for the 21-year-old.

Christie was chasing South Korean leader Choi together with Li when Christie and the Chinese skater tangled. The 33-year-old was thinking the same thing, and thought both he and Girard would be in position to advance until some contact with Seo left the Canadians staring up at the board, waiting for the referees to determine their fates. I think it wasn't the thing to do at that moment.

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

"I thought I clearly passed him but the decision was different, so be it". That's what the referees saw on the replay.

Trump's silence on guns on Thursday was noted with displeasure by many who are seeking tougher firearm restrictions. Similar guns have been used in many mass shootings, including in Las Vegas a year ago and Orlando in 2016.

"He would have loved to have this medal here, but he's happy that I'm the one who has it", Girard said. Girard won in a time of 1:24.650. "I knew something would happen, it's the final, everyone wants to be on the podium, so that's why I went to the front and give a little more energy to stay in the front".

"There is just too much traffic and stuff that can go down if you stay in the back, so we both stayed up in the front and it paid off for both of us", Krueger said.

The United States added two medals on Friday, one gold and one silver, upping its total to nine medals in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

At least 100,000 people were left without power in Oaxaca and at least 50 homes were damaged by the natural disaster as well. A 5.9-magnitude aftershock hit almost an hour later - one of more than 200 aftershocks so far, said the interior ministry.

"I bumped into the American and that is it", Knegt said.

One of the wipeouts took down medal contender Marianne St-Gelais of Canada in the 1,500 semifinals.

"Charles played a huge role for him", Campbell said.

Victory was effectively sealed on 71 minutes for the home side, although it came from an very bad error by Villa keeper Johnstone. Ryan Sessegnon and Floyd Ayite were on target as the Cottagers became the first team to inflict a league defeat on Villa in 2018.

Krueger's road to the Olympic podium has been a long one.
