Corey has had a great season so far in the longest distance, and continued his great form to reach his second A-Final of the season.
In the A-Final, Corey finished in sixth place, improving on his eighth place finish earlier in the season in Almaty, Kazakhstan.Corey also competed in the 500m, finishing in 29th place, just missing out on advancing to the next round after finishing second in his repechage quarter final heat.
Reflecting on his performances in Germany, Corey commented:
"That was my best finish so far, and I am absolutely chuffed about my performance yesterday."
"In the semi-final there was a lot of bumping and grinding in that race, but I managed to get through and barely make it across the line in second, as out of the final turn my blade poked into the ice and I stumbled."
"I am happy to take part in finals, it's such a great experience and I hope to see more of those in the future."
"Overall I am pretty happy with my best finish so far. In the 500m I had a bit of touch luck, but that's Short Track."
