Dutch Speed Skaters Dominate Women's 3000-M Final

Carlijn Achtereekte won the opening speed skating event Dutch Speed Skaters Dominate Women's 3000-M Final

Carlijn Achtereekte surprised the speed skating world on Saturday finishing with a gold medal in the 3,000 meter event at the Winter Olympics.

A two-time victor of the event, in 2006 and 2014, Wust has now pulled level with Germany's Claudia Pechstein on nine career Olympic medals, the most by any speed skater.

The two remaining gold medals up for grabs went to Germany duo Laura Dahlmeier in the 7.5km biathlon sprint and Andreas Wellinger in the men's normal hill ski jumping event, which went on beyond midnight in windy conditions. "I hoped. I was dreaming about it but I didn't expect it".

The 28-year-old skated in the fifth of 12 heats, well before the favourites, but her dazzling effort of 3:59.21 held up to win.

One race into the Games, a quarter of that target has been reached, and freshly minted 3,000m champion Achtereekte's thoughts have turned to how she will celebrate.

But it was another near-miss for Wust, a four-time Olympic champion who also settled for second in the 1,000, 1,500 and 5,000 at Sochi in 2014. It was only the last lap that I won it and that's my power. "This was not the race of my career, but I'm happy with bronze", De Jong said.

Mass start will make its Olympic debut at the PyeongChang Games that kick off on Friday. "I think they were nervous", Murray said. "I skated a good race, but the others are really good and I'm happy with the Dutch sweep". "I think in the first period we were nervous and it was hard to come back from that". "I have to be satisfied with the silver, although it hurts a little bit". The Dutch will be hoping for more speed skating clean sweeps at PyeongChang 2018, having recorded four in Russian Federation four years ago.

"My dream was to have four Olympics - Turin, Vancouver and Sochi I won gold, and to win gold again here in Pyeongchang but I have another chance on Monday". Coach Sarah Murray played three North Korean forwards as required in the deal creating the team; she had to scratch three of her South Korean players for the game.

"I'm always determined for gold but maybe now a little extra".
