After Pietro Segel took the podium, Italy is also celebrating the women’s relay in the first stage of the World Cup Short Track Championships in Montreal. The quartet of Elisa Confortola, Gloria Ioriati, Ariana Segel and Ariana Valspina finished third, marking a very important position for a very small team with excellent growth margins.
Victory was the most favourite Dutch Written by Susan Schulting and Xandra Vilzibor, the absolute champions at the World Cup debut. A race dominated by the Dutch who beat the hosts Canada and, as mentioned, Italy who won the match for third place with the United States.
With that, he deeply regrets the men’s race (Petro Siegel, Andrea Casinelli, Thomas Nadalini, Luca Spechenhauser), who threw a practically safe podium in the wind with a very aggressive Siegel on the last lap. The Trentino rider was not satisfied with the third place and tried to attack the Kazakh athlete, which ended up bringing him down. The inevitable jury decision was to eliminate Italy, who are still satisfied with reaching the final and very close to the podium. The victory went to South Korea, which took advantage of the thunderous fall of Canada, which was in the leadership position. The host country had to gain third place, while Kazakhstan took second place.
In today’s singles finals, as mentioned, Pietro Sighel’s podium arrived in the 500 metres. In the second round of the 1000m race, Canada’s Pascal Deol beat South Koreans Hong Kyung-hwan and Kim Tae-sung. The champions are Susan Schulting and Zandra Vilzibor who won the 500m and 1,000m races respectively.
