GANGNEUNG, SOUTH KOREA—Canada’s Marianne St-Gelais failed to make it out of the quarter-final stage of the women’s 500-metre short-track speedskating at the Pyeongchang Olympics after receiving a penalty for impeding.
St-Gelais made contact with Yara Van Kerkhof of the Netherlands while trying to jockey for position.
The 27-year-old from Saint-Felicien, Que., was a medal threat for the Canadians after winning silver in the distance during last year’s ISU world championships.
St-Gelais also took silver in the 500 during the 2010 Vancouver Games.
The three-time Olympic medallist has earned silver in the 3,000-metre relay in each of the previous two Olympics.
