Salt Lake City was a very interesting World Cup for a variety of reasons.  Ignited by the excitement of the sport in the 2002 Olympics, Americans turned out in record numbers to watch short track.  Also, the Chinese sent their B team, which was nothing, if not a force to be reckoned with.  Unfortunately, due to stomach trouble, Jonathan was not to skate any of the distances that he was scheduled for, except for the 5000m relay.  But he made that one distance count, and together, they took home the Gold!
