Hungary storms to first Winter Games gold

Hungary claimed their first gold medal at a Winter Olympics by pulling off a stunning victory in the men’s 5,000 meters relay on Thursday after a fall cost South Korea a place on the podium.

Hungary had never won a short-track medal at the Winter Olympics and their first was sealed in an Olympic record time of 6 minutes 31.971 seconds. China finished 0.064 seconds behind for silver and Canada took bronze.

Brothers Sandor Liu Shaolin and Shaoang Liu raced alongside Viktor Knoch and Csaba Burjan to make history for Hungary in the final short track event of the Games.

They celebrated wildly at the end, high-fiving and hugging their technical staff beside the track before skating around the rink holding their country’s flag.
