REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – JR Celski, the Filipino-American speed skater representing team USA in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia hit the ice in his first competition on Monday.
The 23-year-old San Francisco Bay Area native fell short of winning a medal in the 1,500-meter short track and finished fourth overall.
The good news is that his chances for a medal aren’t over yet. The FilAm Olympian still has as many as three events to compete in.
Celski took bronze in the same race in 2010.
