Silver medal went to Joy Beune from the Netherlands. She was surprised about the result. Beune said that her performance was nearly perfect and everything went as good as possible. Bronze medalist came from Canada as Beatrice Lamarche narrowly beated Nan Sun from China.

Conditions have changed a bit from yesterday. Weather is sunny. Kachanova told that ice is very good and slippery but there is some headwind on the straight. Silver medalist Joy Beune agreed on that.

-It’s little bit windy. But I like that the sun is shining comparing to yesterdays cloudy weather.
