Short track speed skating[edit]

China qualified five skaters of each gender for the Olympics during World Cup 3 & 4 in November 2013. They qualified the maximum number of starting places with 3 for each gender in each distance (500m, 1000m, & 1500m) and both a men's and women's relay team.[13]

China was hot favorites to win most of the gold medals from the women in the short-track speed skating, including in the 500m, 1000m & 3000m women's relay. However reigning three-time Olympic gold medalist from Vancouver Wang Meng, broke her ankle during a crash during ice training on January 15, 2014 and did not compete at the Olympics.[14] Creating a big blow to the medal chances for China, and an emotional impact on the team with only a month remaining before Sochi.[15] China was handed another blow with disqualification from the women's 3000m relay final at Sochi, after impeding on the last lap giving arch rival Korea the gold medal. Korea was handed the same disqualification in Vancouver that gave China the gold medal four years earlier. Fan Kexin was set to win the 500m after Wang Meng's injury. However again fell during the semi's. However China picked up to win surprise win's in the 500m from Li Jianrou, and 1500m from Zhou Yang. The men also came away with un-predicted medals.
