Out Olympic Speed Skater Brittany Bowe Notches 3rd Top Five Finish In PyeongChang

Out U.S. Olympic speed skater Brittany Bowe finished fifth in the women’s 500-meter with a time of 37.53 seconds - just two-tenths of a point off the podium.

Today's results follow her 5th place finish in the 1500 meter race and a 4th place in the 1000 meter race.

“Other than being two-tenths off the podium, I’m really, really happy with that race,” speaking to NBC after the race. “I can’t think of anything I could have executed better, to be honest with you.”

“Obviously, I’m disappointed coming out medal-less so far,” she added. “We still have the team pursuit. I really want a medal for everybody that’s helped me along the way, my whole life and especially this past year and a half getting me back to that start line. It would mean the world to me.”

The women's team event will take place over Monday and Wednesday this week.

But even if that doesn't work out, Bowe says she's not finished her Olympic journey yet as she plans on being at the 2022 games in four years.

“I definitely plan on going another four years,” she said. “I can’t be done here, that’s for sure.”
