SOCHI, RUSSIA – Emily Scott’s time at the 2014 Winter Olympics concludes without a medal after she finishes third in the 1000 meter short track quarterfinals today.

The Springfield native finished fifth in her only Olympic final in the 1500 meter short track. Scott also competed in the 500 meter short track but failed to advance to the final race.

Scott conducted many fund raisers prior to Sochi to pay for her trip to the Winter Olympics as the U.S. Olympic committee cut funding for the women’s speed skating program.
