The United State men’s 5,000-meter relay team wrapped up the short track program at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, winning the B Final on Thursday evening at the Gangneung Ice Arena.
Federal Way natives JR Celski and Aaron Tran, Thomas Hong and John-Henry Krueger won with a time of 6 minutes, 52.708 seconds, finishing fifth overall.
“It’s been a fun ride all season,” Celski said. “We’ve had a lot of success. We’ve come back from positions that we didn’t think we could do well from.”
The U.S. finished last week’s 5,000-meter relay semifinal in third place behind Hungary, who won gold, and the Republic of Korea to advance to Thursday’s B Final.
“(The Olympics have) been unreal,” Tran said. “The atmosphere and everything has been a dream.”
