Cho, Reutter win short track races
MOSCOW American Katherine Reutter captured her second straight and fifth overall victory in short track speedskating this season, winning the women’s World Cup 1,000-meter race Sunday.
Simon Cho of the United States won the men’s 500 meters in 42.157 seconds for his first World Cup win this season.
Reutter, who took silver in the 1,000 and bronze in the 3,000 relay at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, timed 1 minute, 32.076 seconds at Megasport Arena for her second top finish in the discipline.
The American, who won the 1,500 meters Saturday, led the 1,000 from the second lap and edged South Korea’s Hwang Hyunsun and Kim Dam-min at the finish line.
Cho also led his race to finish ahead of Britain’s Paul Stanley and Freek Van Der Wart of the Netherlands.
South Korea’s Noh Jinkyu won the men’s 1,000 in 1:26.661, Thibaut Fauconnet of France was 0.113 seconds behind and American Travis Jayner was third in 1:27.022 for his second podium in as many days.
Olympic silver medalist Marianne St-Gelais of Canada won the women’s 500 in 43.612 seconds.
The final stop of the six-leg World Cup is next weekend in Dresden, Germany.
