Summary

Only one woman was supposed to win this competition: [Yang Yang (A)] of China. She had won the last five world titles in the event, and the season's World Cup. To boot, she also owned the world record, and had won the 500 m gold earlier in the Olymics. She would face tough competition, from the season's winners in World Cup races: namesake and teammate [Yang Yang (S)], and South Koreans [Go Gi-Hyun] and [Choi Eun-Gyeong], who had placed 1-2 in the 1,500 m.

The race was pretty much a copy of the 500 m. Again, Yang (A) led from start to finish, holding off a competitor (Go) and a teammate (Yang (S)) for the title. Her victory marked the first time a short track skater won two individual gold medals at the Olympics
