Lee Sang-hwa finished second in the women's 500-m race in the International Skating Union's World Cup Speed Skating event in Calgary, Canada on Sunday.
Lee, the two-time Olympic gold medalist and the world record holder in the women's 500-m speed skating, clocked a time of 36.86 seconds, behind Nao Kodaira of Japan who was 0.33 seconds faster than Lee.
It remains to be seen whether Lee will be able to break Kodaira's run in the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, which opens in early February.
