Sochi 2014: South Korea win women's short track relay

South Korea speed skating relay

South Korea won women's 3,000m short track relay gold with a spectacular last-lap manoeuvre to outwit their Chinese rivals at Sochi 2014.

Defending champions China were later penalised, handing silver to Canada, after Shim Suk-hee boldly overtook on the outside to win the race for Korea.

Revenge was sweet for the Koreans, who had lost gold at Vancouver 2010 after a penalty for impeding the Chinese team.

Italy picked up bronze with the Chinese quartet relegated to seventh place.
