The contenders

Arianna Fontana, Italy: Fontana has reached the Final A of every of all three events she has competed in in PyeongChang, winning a gold medal in the 500m and silver in the 3000m relay. With those two medals Fontana became the most successful female short track skater in Olympic history. 

Shim Suk-Hee, South Korea: Shim has had a disappointing Games so far, the 1000m offers her a chance to change that. Shim has not landed on the podium in PyeongChang after entering the Games as a favorite in 1500m. Shim won a bronze medal in the 1000m in Sochi as well as a gold in the 3000m and silver in the 1500m. 

Choi Min-Jeong, South Korea: Choi is fresh off a gold medal in the 1500m. Before the Games, Choi won back-to-back world titles in this event in 2015 and 2016, in addition to placing second in the fall World Cup rankings.

Kim Boutin, Canada: Boutin has quietly won the bronze medal in both short track events completed in PyeongChang. Boutin had a breakthrough this fall, standing on the podium in three of four 1000m World Cup races. 

Marianne St-Gelais, Canada: St-Gelais has twice been eliminated due to penalties in PyeongChang. The Canadian should be a top threat after placing second in this distance at last year’s world championships.

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
