Koreans dominate in Bormio

Korea's undisputed dominance of short track speed skating continued as they scooped both the men's and women's titles at the ISU World Team Championships in Bormio.


Canada won silver in both events while China completed the podium in the men's standings and Italy took bronze in the women's event.

Double Olympic champion Lee Jung-Su played a key role for the men's team over the weekend but despite winning his 1000m race, was beaten by Canada's Olivier Jean over 500m, his least favoured distance.

Great Britain's men - Jon Eley, Jack Whelbourne, Paul Worth and Ian Upcott - finished eighth overall while the women's team - Elise Christie, Charlotte Gilmartin, Sarah Lindsay and Alex Whelbourne - were sixth.
