SOCHI, Russia -- With a breathtaking finish, South Korea captured the gold medal in the women's 3,000-meter relay short track at the Sochi Winter Olympics today. 

The team of Park Seung-hi, Shim Seuk-hee, Cho Hae-ri and Kim A-lang claimed South Korea's first short track gold medal in Sochi, and its second gold overall. They finished the 27-lap race in 4:04.498 seconds. Canada took the silver, and Italy earned the bronze. China finished the relay in second place but received a penalty for interference. 

The victory on Tuesday represents a measure of redemption for South Korea. The country won four straight women's relay gold medals starting in 1994, but the streak ended unceremoniously in 2010 with a controversial disqualification ruling in the final.
