Liiv took 10th place with a time of 35.23s, in an event won by Viktor Mushtakov (Russia) in 34.69s.
Liiv repeated his domestic 500-meter record time, which he last set at the world championship event in Calgary, Canada, nearly a year ago.
Liiv is also taking part in the sprint multi-race event and 500m and 1,000m events on Saturday evening and Sunday.
