BEIJING (AP) — Suzanne Schulting of the Netherlands successfully defended her title in 1,000-meter short track speedskating. She set the world and Olympic records of 1 minute, 26.514 seconds in the quarterfinals. She wasn’t as fast in the final, finishing in 1:28.391. Choi Minjeong of South Korea took silver. Hanne Desmet of Belgium earned bronze for her country’s first medal in short track. Arianna Fontana of Italy was penalized for a lane change that caused contact with American Kristen Santos. Both skaters went down and slid on their sides into the padding. Schulting earlier won a silver medal behind Fontana in the 500.
