PyeongChang 2018: Russia Olympians win first medal

Semen Elistratov has won the Russian Olympians’ first medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics that have kicked off in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Elistratov came in third in the Men’s 1,500m Short Track Speed Skating.

Lim Hyo-jun (South Korea) became Olympic champion in this competition, also breaking an Olympic record.

Russia is banned from these games due to the violations of anti-doping regulations, and therefore Russian athletes are competing in PyeongChang 2018 under the Olympic flag.
