Short track speed skating competition concluded at Lausanne 2020, as athletes from various nations came together to compete in a mixed team relay competition at the Lausanne Skating Arena.

Skaters had enjoyed one day of training as part of mixed National Olympic Committee (NOC) teams, before contesting semi-final and finals today.

South Korea were the dominant force in Winter Youth Olympics individual competitions, earning all four gold medals available.

Skaters from the country formed key parts of three of the teams who advanced to the final.

Kim Chan-seo would become the latest South Korean skater to secure a gold medal, having been the women's 1,000 metres silver medallist behind team mate Seo Whi-min.

Kim formed part of Team B with the Netherlands’ Diede van Oorschot, Japan’s Shogo Miyata and United States’ Jonathan So.

The quartet were able to celebrate a narrow victory by finishing in a time of 4min 12.387sec in the final.

"We worked well as a team," said So.

"We had one day of practice and we communicated really well to sharpen up our flaws."
