South Korea won its heat in the women's 3,000-meter short track speedskating relay at the PyeongChang Olympics on Saturday, despite a fall early on.
Sim Suk-hee, Choi Min-jeong, Kim Ye-jin and Lee Yu-bin skated to a new Olympic record 4minutes and 6.387 seconds in heat 1 of the competition at the Gangneung Ice Arena.
Lee Yu-bin fell, but held out a hand far enough for Choi Min-jeong, who had earlier in the evening set her own Olympic record in the individual 500, to tag her and continue the race.
Their record was short-lived, however, as the Chinese team edged past the new Korean record by over a second in heat 2.
