Andy Jung misses out on advancing to the quarterfinals in 500m short track

Andy Jung missed out on advancing to the quarterfinals in his 500m event events after the courageous heat on Day 11.

Jung said he would give it everything in the men’s 500m, and he certainly lived up to that promise.

The 19-year-old came out flying, and looked comfortable in the top three.

But as he rounded a corner he lost control, slipping off his edge and crashing in to the barrier.

“My blade collided with another guy and I couldn’t stay up,” he said. “I was feeling strong and I really went for it.

“I’m really disappointed but I know I couldn’t have given it much more.”
