South Korean short track speed skater Choi Min-jeong became the host country's first double gold medalist at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Tuesday, and took a step closer to a rare milestone.

Choi helped South Korea to the gold medal in the women's 3,000-meter relay, at Gangneung Ice Arena, giving the country its fifth Olympic relay title.

Members of the South Korean women's 3,000-meter relay team celebrate their gold medal at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics at Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, Gangwon Province, on Feb. 20, 2018.

Choi, who had earlier won the 1,500m title, can become only the second South Korean woman to win at least three gold medals at a single Winter Olympics. Jin Sun-yu first accomplished that feat at Torino 2006, winning the 1,000m, 1,500m and 3,000m relay gold medals. The women's 1,000m final here is Thursday

The women's 3,000m relay team won gold over Italy. And with Canada and China both penalized in the A Final, the Netherlands, which won the B Final for countries who lose in the semis, moved up to the bronze medal.

South Korea has won three of its four gold medals so far in short track speed skating.
