It was another podium sweep for the Netherlands in Speed Skating on Tuesday.
Jorrit Bergsma of the Netherlands claimed the gold in the Men’s 10000 . Bergsma, 28, previously claimed he bronze in the Men’s 5000 m a week ago. Bergsma finished with an Olympic record 12:44.45 time.
Sven Kramer of the Netherlands won his second medal of the 2014 Winter Olympics by taking the silver in the Men’s 10000 m on Tuesday. Kramer, 27, won a gold in the 5000 m a week ago.
It was a bounce back of sorts from the 2010 Winter Olympics in which Kramer finished first but was later disqualified for failing to switch to the proper lane near the end of the race. The decision was blamed on poor instructions by his coach.
Bob De Jong of the Netherlands claimed the bronze in the Men’s 10000 m Speed Skating event on Tuesday. De Jong, 37, claimed the silver medal in the 18 Nagano games, the gold at Turin in 2006 and the bronze at Vancouver in 2010.
