Hamelin won the gold medal in the men's 500m event and won the silver medal in the men's 1500m event. In the men's 500m, Hamelin posted a time of 40.803 seconds and beat Russian Vladimir Grigorev by .085 seconds. Grigorev will be a major competition for Hamelin all season long, especially because he will have home ice advantage at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
Hamelin is trying to do something that no short track speed skater has ever done before and that is to win back-to-back gold medals in the men's 500m at an Olympic Games.
In the men's 1500m, Hamelin was only .016 seconds back of Jinkyu Noh of South Korea for first place.
Meanwhile, in the women's 500m, Hamelin's girlfriend, Olympic silver medalist Marianne St-Gelais of Roberval, Quebec won the bronze medal.
