BEIJING -- The defending silver medalist South Korea was sent home in the quarterfinals of the men's team pursuit speed skating race at Beijing 2022 on Sunday.

The trio of Lee Seung-hoon, Kim Min-seok and Chung Jae-won finished sixth overall among eight quarterfinalists at the National Speed Skating Oval with the time of 3:41.89. The Netherlands grabbed the last semifinal ticket in 3:38.90.
