Top storylines to watch: Short track speed skating
Oct 25, 11:30am EDT
Short track was a story of dominance in Vancouver, with Canadian Charles Hamelin leading the men and Wang Meng of China leading the women. Who will shine in Sochi?
Who will replace Wang Meng?
Another candidate to replace Wang, at least in the 500m, which is her best distance, is fellow Chinese short tracker Fan Kexin, who finished second in the overall World Cup standings for the distance and is the only woman other than Wang to win a 500m race this World Cup season.
Shim Suk-Hee represents South Korea
Shim Suk-Hee, pictured above, could be the most successful short track skater at the Games. After winning the overall World Cup title the last two seasons, the 17-year-old has burst onto the scene and absolutely dominated the competition.
South Korean concerns
South Korea has dominated short track over the years, but Sochi might be a different story. Injuries sidelined Noh Jin-Kyu and forced Lee Ho-Suk to be on the team for his third Olympics, a first for a South Korean man. There's still Lee Han-Bin, a major medal contender in the 1500m, but the overall men's lineup is less powerful than previous Games.
