Canada's speed skating team members post FANTASTIC Olympic performance!

March 1, 2018

A SHOUT OUT to Canada's speed skating team for a FANTASTIC Olympic performance!

Canada’s Ted-Jan Bloemen has won the gold in the men’s 10,000-metre speed skating event at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Bloemen completed 25 laps of the track with a time of 12:39.77. He started quickly, ahead of the leader’s pace, but began to run out of steam. He is the world record-holder in this event, and now also the Olympic record-holder.

 

Defending Olympic champion Jorrit Bergsma of the Netherlands set a new Olympic record with a time of 12:41.98 to claim the silver. Bloemen broke that record minutes later. Nicola Tumolero of Italy won the bronze.

 

This is Bloemen’s second medal in Pyeongchang. He also won silver in the 5,000-metre event on Feb. 11. Another Canadian, Jordan Belchos, started his race fast, but flagged a little in the second half. He found more energy at the very end though and finished strongly with a personal best time of 12:59.51. This earned him fifth place.
