Schulting wins gold in women's 1000 metres short track

Figure skater Sjoukje Dijkstra won gold in 1964 and snowboarder Nicolien Sauerbreij became Olympic champion in 2010.

Suzanne Schulting took a surprise gold in the short-track 1,000-metre final on Thursday at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Korean duo Choi Min-jeong and Shim Suk-hee crashed out of the race at the Gangneung Ice Arena. The 20-year-old led from the start to claim the Olympic title from Canada's Kim Boutin and Arianna Fontana of Italy.

As they rounded the second-to-last turn and were attempting a move up from their positions at the rear of the pack, they bumped into one another slid into the sidewall.

Boutin's silver was her third medal of PyeongChang 2018, following her bronzes in the 500m and 1,500m, while Fontana added bronze to the gold she won in the 500m on 13 February.

"At the end we got tangled, and I think then we fell down", Shim said.

The 1,000m is Boutin's best individual race; she's ranked No. 1 on the World Cup circuit at that distance.

For Boutin, the silver medal was a welcome step up from her bronzes in the 500 and 1,500 meters. "I know that I couldn't do that alone".
