Hill, who has been selected to represent Team GB at the European Youth Olympic Festival, qualified for the 500m heats as one of the fastest third placed skaters. The 17-year-old also won a ranking final preliminary in the 1000m.


Collins made the 1000m quarter-finals, after an advancement from his heat. He just missed out on a place in the semi-final, coming in third behind the eventual silver medallist Geonnyeong Park from Korea.
