Silver for Karolína Erbanová

Czech speed skater Karolína Erbanová took second place in the European championship 500 meters combined event in Hamar, Norway, on Saturday. The Czech appeared on track for her fifth gold medal in the event before a fall just ahead of the finishing line. That error meant she finished just three hundredths of a second behind first place Dutch rival, Ireen Wust.
