Canadian speedskater Steven Dubois has won the bronze medal in the men’s 500-metre short track event at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
Dubois, of Terrebonne, Que., came in third place behind Hungarian Shaoang Liu, who took gold, and Russian silver-medallist Konstantin Ivliev, in the final at the Capital Indoor Stadium on Sunday.
This is 24-year-old Dubois’ second medal at the Beijing Games, adding to the silver he captured in the men’s 1,500-metre short-track skating race on Wednesday.
Dubois finished with a time of 40.669 to secure a spot on the podium for a second time on his Olympic debut.
Liu’s winning time was 40.338 and Ivliev raced at 40.431 to finish in second place.
Fellow Canadian Jordan Pierre-Gilles was eliminated earlier after falling in the quarterfinals.
The Canadian women’s 3,000-metre relay team failed to reach the podium, finishing fourth.
Dubois took Canada’s Olympic medal tally to 14 on Sunday, with one more week of competition to go.
