Lockett’s best result in the 1500m saw her qualify first out of the heats then second in her quarter-final. Unfortunately, she was relegated to the B Final after the semi-final and had to settle for 6th place and 12th overall.
In the 1000m Lockett ended up 16th overall and was 30th in the 500m, and combined with her 1500m achieved an overall world ranking of 18th.
PyeongChang is not far from Lockett’s mind and prior to the World Championships the Sochi Olympian said that the Asian Winter Games was helpful.
“The Asian Winter Games did give a little taste of the Olympic atmosphere and did remind me of the Olympic hype of what is yet to come for PyeongChang. I still have the job ahead of me to qualify next season so I don't like to think too far ahead. I want to enjoy the whole process.”
“It has been a good season with some good races and lessons I have learnt. I'm excited for the next season,” Jung said.
Sochi Olympian Pierre Boda did not have the World Championship he was hoping for, placing 35th in the 500m and 1500m plus 34th in the 1000m earning him an overall world ranking of 35th.
“This year has been tough with many changes,” Boda admitted. “I have managed to keep grounded and work hard.”
