Ahn just edged the gold medal on the finishing line
Ahn Hyun-soo won his second gold medal of the Winter Olympics after clinching the men's 1000m speed skating title.

The Korean, who won the 1500m last week, set a new Olympic record with a time of one minute 26.739 seconds.

Ahn's compatriot Lee Ho-Suk was edged into silver, while Apolo Anton Ohno of the USA claimed the bronze medal.

Jin Sun-yu led a South Korean one-two in the women's 1500m final, while Great Britain's Sarah Lindsay was knocked out in the semi-finals.

The Koreans had thought they had completed a clean medals sweep when Choi Eun-kyung and Byun Chun-sa crossed the finishing line behind their 17-year-old compatriot.

But Byun was disqualified for impeding, leaving China's 500m champion Wang Meng to claim bronze.

Lindsay squeezed into the semi-finals, where she finished last of six in her race.
