Deanna Locket and Andy Jung made it out of their heats in the 1500m and 500m respectively.
Andy will skate Rep tomorrow for the 1500 and Deanna will skate the repechage on Sunday for the 500 (2).
Alex Bryant wasn’t as lucky with a fall but has another chance tomorrow
“Alex was looking really strong until he fell coming out of the corner in the 1000,” coach Nic Cicero said from Shanghai. “He’ll skate in the rep rounds tomorrow and Sunday.”
Pierre Boda, Simon Francis and brothers Denali Blunden and Keanu Blunden all made it through to the 500m repechage rep rounds.
Relay racing, which produced Australia’s first Olympic medal in Lillehammer in 1994, is on the agenda for the men who competed in Shanghai.
“It was a decent relay, unfortunately coming 4th in our heat,” Cicero said. “We need to work on our exchanges, which will drop that time.”
The ISU Shanghai World Cup continues today (Saturday).
