Heather Richardson, Brittany Bowe and Jilleanne Rookard were unable to find the podium in Sunday’s Women’s 1500 km Speed Skating event from Sochi, Russia.

A trio of skaters from the Netherlands swept the medals led by Jorien Ter Mors who set an Olympic record with a 1:53:51. Ireen Wust and Lotte Van Beek took the silver and bronze.

Van Beek’s run was the last which pushed Marrit Leenstra off the podium. Still the Netherlands finished one though four.

Overall the Netherlands has won a record 16 medals in Speed Skating this year. The United States had hoped for medals but have yet to find their first.
