Ireen Wüst grabs gold on the 1,500m Speed-Skating (her tenth medal!)

Ireen Wüst has set up a unique series at the Olympic Games. The 31-year-old speed skater conquered a gold medal in her fourth Winter Games in a row, her fifth gold in total.

Wüst triumphed on the ice rink in Gangneung on the 1,500 meters. With 1.54.35 on the timer, the Dutch kept all competitors behind her. It is for Wüst, who already won silver in South Korea on the 3,000 meters, her tenth medal in total. How awesome is this?! She is the only skater with ten Olympic medals.

She won her first gold exactly twelve years ago and after the 1,500 meters race of today she announced that this was her last Olympic Games. Marrit Leenstra finished third and took her first individual medal at the Games.

So surely we top the chart now again? Netherlands first right?

Ah damn – DEUTSCHLAND UBER ALLES

Here’s a little article on why the Dutch are so good at speed skating btw
