Unfortunately, Kreuger, who is from Peters Township, was not able to advance in the men's 1500m speed skate.
After the crash-filled semifinals, nine skaters advanced to the final later Saturday night.
Among them is defending Olympic champion Charles Hamelin of Canada.
American J.R. Celski finished sixth and last in his semifinal heat and didn't advance after being penalized. Joining Celski on the sidelines was his teammate Krueger, who also got penalized.
