After seeing U.S. short track skaters Eduardo Alvarez and Jordan Malone fall out of the mix, J.R. Celski skated well enough to make the men’s short track 500m quarterfinals with a qualifying run on Tuesday.

The medal runs will all take place on Friday.

This is the last individual short track speed skating event that the U.S. can win.
