China has won the short track speed skating mixed relay event at the Beijing Olympics. It is the host country's first gold medal of the Games.

Athletes from China, Italy, Hungary, and Canada competed in the final on Saturday. The race got off to a rocky start.

The Hungarian and Canadian skaters crashed almost immediately after the gun was fired. That forced a restart. Athletes from the two countries crashed again later on.

China's skater crossed the finish line just half a blade ahead of Italy's. Italy won the silver medal. Hungary took the bronze.

It was the first short track speed skating mixed relay event at an Olympics.
