Another Filipino athlete failed to clinch a podium finish at a Winter Olympic event.
Speed skater JR Celski, who represents the US, crashed out in the one thousand meter short track quarterfinal round. Celski posted an early lead but he tripped and fell off the track near the end of the race.
It was Russia's Victor An who went on to win the gold.
The Filipino-Polish Celski still has one last shot at a medal. He will compete with team US for the 5,000 meter team relay finals next Saturday. -- ANC World Tonight, February 15, 2014
