Russia's Nikita Tregubov was second and Latvia's Tomass Dukurs was third.

Yun finished three-quarters of a second ahead of Tregubov, a massive margin in a sport where races are routinely decided by hundreths of a second.

Matt Antoine of the US was fourth after the first heat, then struggled in his second run and wound up ninth. (AP)
