Kim Boutin delivered again in an Olympic short track final, winning a bronze medal in the women's 500 metres as the last Canadian speed skater standing at Capital Indoor Stadium on Monday night in Beijing.

The 27-year-old from Sherbrooke, Que., also won bronze in the event in her triple-medal Winter Games debut four years ago in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

In Monday's final, Boutin overcame a false start to stop the clock in 42.724 seconds, behind Italy's Arianna Fontana (42.488) and Suzanne Schulting of the Netherlands (42.559).

"I really lived this moment. I feel I was in the race and knew where I should pass. [For my coaches] it was their goal for me to be happy on the ice, and I was," Boutin told Roseline Filion, the retired Olympic diver now employed by Radio-Canada. "I'm proud of myself."

Boutin will join her women's teammates for the 3,000 relay semifinals scheduled for Wednesday at 7:45 a.m. ET.
