"We have competed against each other for many years", Kodaira said of the moment, according to The Japan Times. "To be honest I didn't want to be the captain but (coach Masahiro) Yuki-sensei persuaded me and I wondered what I could learn from the experience in the future". "The Beijing Winter Games is a story far away".

World record holder Lee, the Olympic champion in 2010 and 2014, was beaten by 0.39 seconds as Kodaira set a new Olympic record to win in a time of 36.94 seconds.

It was a true Olympic moment and no small thing given that Japan and South Korea have had a complicated relationship over the years.

The race was the first speed-skating event at the Oval in which no Dutch skaters finished on the podium.

Those efforts helped Kodaira improve on her start and the first 100 meters of the race, which had always been Lee's forte. The country has four gold medals in short track speed skating in the Winter Olympics, and two of those gold medals are by Lee.

Lee Sang-Hwa works hard for PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018. They also considered how to improve the quality of her bone structure and blood circulation to produce the highest level of skating possible. "All I had to do is skate as I am supposed to skate". I was afraid of falling into idleness.

Bergsma also earned three World Cup titles in 2017: overall, 1,500 meter and 1000 meter.

She said the tears still come when she recalls the situation after the race, suggesting how hard it was for her to cope with the expectations of those hosting the Games.

"I was the captain of the whole Japanese delegation this time".

The Netherlands' Ireen Wust won gold medal in the 1,500 meter event on Monday, using a stirring last lap and crossing the line faster than Japan's Miho Takagi in the women's 1,500-meter speedskating event. "I haven't been out there very long total, like, in my life, so every practice that I lose is just like kind of another step back, just things that I have to re-learn".

"I did make a mistake on the final corner, so (watching the video) would disappoint me.

She's my friend", Kodaira said. The sprinter holds the world record in the distance at 36.36. I have no attachment to it. The record for 1:50.85 was set in Salt Lake City in November 2015. "I know he has been reading a lot of literature on injuries and I would like to talk to him and find out what he has been reading". "And it seems I am already a legend", Lee said smiling, adding that she wishes to be given full credit for being a skater who endured through hardships without giving up.
