Turin Olympic champion Wang Meng of China retained the women’s 500 meters short track speed skating title on Wednesday at the Vancouver Winter Games.

The reigning world record holder crossed the line first at 43.048 seconds to extend China’s dominance in this event since the Salt Lake City Games in 2002 when Yang Yang ended the Chinese gold drought at Winter Olympics.

Marianne St-Gelais of Canada settled for the silver with 43.707 while the bronze medal went to Italian Arianna Fontana in 43.804.
