Canadian short track speed skater Marianne St-Gelais won't get a chance to win another Olympic medal in the women's 500 metres after finishing third in her semifinal heat Thursday at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi.

St-Gelais, from Saint-Felicien, Que., finished with a time of 44.069 seconds. She won silver in the same event four years ago in Vancouver.

South Korea's Seung-Hi Park won the heat in 43.611 and Italy's Arianna Fontana also qualified with a time of 43.624.
