The International Skating Union (ISU) declined China’s appeal for disqualification in short track speed skating women's 3,000m relay final at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games last night.

The reason is that China did not appeal within 30 minutes after the match. 

Team China crossed the finish line second. But after a discussion among referees, China was disqualified.

China’s short track speed skating head coach Li Yan appealed to the ISU technique committee immediately, and later referees explained that China was penalized due to cross track.
