This is the first championship of China's short track team in the new season.Liu Shaoang and Korean player Jin Jianyu won second and third respectively.
Although this result is 0.252 seconds slower than Wu Dajing's own world record, considering his long distance from the ice rink and the first battle of the season, it is enough to prove his good state. Women's 500 meters, Fan Kexin, Zang Yize and Wang Xinran did not qualify for the final. Han Yutong won the fourth place in women's 1500 meters and failed to get on the podium.
