Canadian speedskater Bloemen wins gold in men's 10000 metres — CP NewsAlert

Patinage de vitesse l'or pour Bloemen au 10000m Bloemen sets new Olympic record on way to 10000m speed skating crown

"Yeah, maybe you could compare, yeah", Bloemen said, pondering the idea. "I am so proud I made it and so thankful to my team".

But Kramer fell well behind, never a threat to Bloemen, who raced around his 27 laps well ahead of his competitors, winning Canada's second ever medal in the men's 10,000m, the other coming in 1932, a bronze won by Frank Stack.

Canada's Ted-Jan Bloemen won 10,000m speed skating gold on his Winter Olympics debut as the Games record was broken twice in Pyeongchang. At 27, he was ill-disciplined and could not find his way in the ultra-competitive world of Dutch speedskating.

Asked last weak if beating Kramer's records is a bit like defeating a legend like Roger Federer at tennis during his prime, Bloemen laughed. "Imagine that feeling. It's really, really, incredible".

It showed in his race on Thursday. He maintained the lead for much of the time but briefly could not match Bergsma's pace.

Somehow, though, his Canadian preparations paid golden dividends and Bloemen went into overdrive to secure the victory.

Bloemen flung his arms in the air with joy after crossing the line, knowing he'd put down a time that would be tough for Kramer to beat.

The moderates' measure does not alter a lottery that distributes about 55,000 visas annually to people from diverse countries. Trump would want to focus that money on construction of a U.S. -Mexico border wall.

Bloemen finished in 12mins 39.77sec, bettering the 12:44.45 Olympic record set by Bergsma at Sochi 2014. Tumolero earned bronze in 12:54.32.

The only thing standing in the way of Bloemen's quest for gold in the gruelling 10K event, it seemed, was another Dutchman - Sven Kramer, the man some consider to be the best long-distance speed skater of all time. The only time he has not is in the Olympic 10,000. "I didn't hit it", said Kramer, the 5,000-meter champion at the Pyeongchang Games.

Skating in the final pairing, Kramer found himself nearly two seconds off the pace midway through the race.

"I wasn't in the flow".

"When you win, you always have that little bit of extra energy and I think that's the right time to release it", he said.

When he arrived at the Olympics, he did so as the world record holder in the 5,000 and 10,000 metres and he set both records after moving to Canada.
