      Former USOEC members earn Olympic silver in Men's 5,000-meter short track speedskating

      Jordan Malone and Chris Creveling, two former USOEC speedskaters, earned Olympic silver in the Men's 5,000-meter short track speedskating relay on Friday.

      It was the last chance for the US to earn a medal in speedskating.

      After an early fall by the Netherlands, the USA Team of Malone, Creveling, J.R. Celski and Eduardo Alvarez finished in second, in 6:42.371. The men won the only speedskating medal of the Winter Olympics for the US.

      Viktor Ahn led the Russia team to an Olympic gold medal with a time of 6:42.100. China earned the bronze medal with a finish of 6:48.341.
