Controversy involving Canadian medal winner

Short-track speedskater Kim Boutin has shut down all of her social media accounts after receiving hundreds of angry Twitter messages following her controversial bronze-medal win in the 500-metre race.  Boutin was bumped up from fourth place to third after South Korea’s Minjeong Choi was disqualified for interfering with the Canadian. Angry fans, mainly from South Korea, tweeted animated gifs or still images from the race, claiming that Boutin had pushed hoi.
