Embrace the chaos: Wild short-track nights are a crowd pleaser

GANGNEUNG, South Korea _ Less than five seconds into the first women’s 500-meter quarterfinal, one skater slammed into the wall and another was about to be disqualified. In the very next race, a wipeout right before the finish meant Canada’s Kim Boutin slid to a second-place finish on her backside. One race was so close that a winner wasn’t immediately listed and a photo finish was called. Turns out the Netherlands’ Yara van Kerkhof beat Great Britian’s Elise Christie by .002 of a second.
