Semifinal
8  Sarah Lindsay (GBR)  

Note: Fu Tianyu was disqualified in Final A and is thus unranked. Sarah Lindsay qualified for the semi-final after a disqualification but finished fifth in her heat.

On February 16, Canada filed a protest with the Court of Arbitration for Sport over the results of the Final A, but it was dismissed.[1] Evgenia Radanova of Bulgaria, who won the Silver, crossed the finish line with part of one of her skates in the air, which is against the rules. No judges noticed this during the race or the video replay but it did happen. The International Olympic Committee does not change results after they have been finalized based on video replay, but the International Skating Union does. For example, they disqualified Fu Tianyu from the A Final for cross-tracking (improperly crossing the course or interfering with another skater)[2]. On February 17 the CAS dismissed the appeal, with a written ruling expected on February 18. Regardless, the CAS has no power to overturn an Olympic result, just to make recommendations to the IOC.[3]
