A day of Olympic debuts for some and the start of one last hurrah for others, day 5 at the Beijing Games was another exciting affair. Hong Kong skier Audrey King took to the slopes but was unable to register a finish in the Alpine skiing slalom. King was the first of the city's three athletes to compete in Beijing. Elsewhere, China's Ren Ziwei was chasing his third Bejing short-track speedskating gold in the men's 1,500m, but was given a penalty in the semi-finals. South Korea's Hwang Dae-heon went on to take an emotional victory, in a moment of redemption after his controversial disqualification in Monday's 1,000m semis. China's three athletes – Zhang Chutong, Qu Chunyu, and Han Yutong – are all through to the women's 1,000m quarter-finals on Friday, while the women's relay team made it through to Sunday's 3,000m final. Snowboarder Cai Xuetong has also begun her quest for a medal in the half-pipe. Speaking of which, the legend that is Shaun White kept his dreams of one final Olympic medal alive by advancing after a wobbly first run.
