Norway and Japan emerged as winners of the men's and women's team pursuit speed skating events here on Wednesday in the PyeongChang Winter Games.

Japanese athletes have so far won 11 medals at the PyeongChang Olympics - three golds, five silvers and three bronzes.

We challenged this 4-time medalist to his favourite off season activity under race-like conditions.

There was never really any chance of there being that big a gap between their next triumph in the sport as Havard Bokko, Simen Spieler Nilsen and Sverre Lunde Pedersen produced a superb performance to earn a commanding victory over South Korea in the final.

"To cross the finish line and the entire stadium just goes to silence", said Lorentzen, who will go for a second gold medal in Friday's 1,000-meter race.

The U.S. women's speedskating team was not expected to make much of a stir in the team pursuit, but that didn't stop Heather Bergsma, Brittany Bowe and Mia Manganello from making history.

The best-placed Dutchman, Ronald Mulder, started strongly but was overtaken by the Norwegian Harvad Lorentzen, who snatched the gold medal in an Olympic record of 34.41 seconds.

The United States came in third on 2:59.27 ahead of Canada.

The Netherlands could not live with the pace of the Japanese squad as they were forced to settle for the silver medal. The Dutch captured the bronze medal, defeating New Zealand in the B final.
