John-Henry Krueger of the U.S. earned silver  in the 1,000-meter short-track speedskating at the Pyeongchang Games.

Samuel Girard of Canada won gold and Seo Yira of South Korea took bronze.

Liu Shaolin Sandor of Hungary crashed in the turn with a lap to go, taking out Lim Hyo-jun of South Korea. Liu was penalized for impeding, but it didn't affect the order of finish because he ended up last.

Krueger's medal was the first by an American in speedskating at the Pyeongchang Games.
