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
