Speeding to victory


Korea’s Lee Ho-suk, right, leads the pack in the men’s 1,000-meter short-track final at the 2010 World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, on March 21.

Lee won the gold medal ahead of his teammate Kwak Yoon-gy, left, and J.R. Celski of the United States, second from left.

Korea clinched the two individual titles as well as relay honors as the world short-track championships came to an end in Sofia on Sunday.

Double Olympic silver-medal winner Lee defended the men’s title he won in Vienna in 2009, finishing ahead of compatriot Kwak and China’s Liang Wenhao.

In the women’s championship, Park Seung-hi, a double bronze medalist at the Vancouver Olympics last month, finished ahead of China’s Wang Meng and Korean teammate Cho Ha-ri.
