Up to five men’s and five women’s short tracks in each country can travel to attend the Olympics.
In addition to Liu Shaolin Sándor (FTC), Liu Shaoang (FTC) and Krueger John-Henry (FTC) in the Beijing and Nagoya rounds of the four-station vk series, Péter Jászapáti (SZKE), Bence Nógrádi (FTC) and Dániel each represent Tiborcz ( MTK), Petra Jászapáti (SZKE), Zsófia Kónya (SZKE), Rebeka Sziliczei-Német (FTC), Sára Luca Bácskai (MTK), Barbara Somogyi (JSE), Maja Somodi (SZKE.)

Like Alexander Liu Shaolin, Liu Shuang and Kruger John Henry: all three qualified for the quarter-finals with their race victory.

Zsófia Kónya and Sára Luca Bácskai were already eliminated in the playoffs during this round.

The quartet of Sara Luca Baxsky, Petra Gaspate, Zofia Cunha and Rebecca Zelitzi-Nemet were not in an easy position, as they had to battle the Chinese and the Italians to reach the semi-finals – which the Britons weren’t going to do. Kick the ball in this race.

Unfortunately, the paper model was confirmed, the switch between China and Italy confidently completed the three thousand meters, and most importantly, it did all this faster than the Hungarian quartet, so our country fell.

But the fact that Jászapátiek still has something to do in the future shows that the fourth (!) best time on the 16th field was skated – behind the Dutch, Chinese and Italians, who also came close to the world record, and the result of 4:05,602 is really quite excellent.

In addition to the “supertrio” Liu Shaolin, Liu Shawang, Kruger John Henry, coaches voted for Peter Gaspati in the men’s sprint preliminaries, and the four played superbly: in their race only the Dutch were considered dangerous opponents, but in the end, Liu Sha straightens and slips imperceptibly Tight at the finish line.

The semi-finals of the men’s relay will take place in Beijing on Saturday: our team will have to fight against China, Canada and Italy to reach the finals – the finals for the first and second places.
