Essent ISU World Cup Speed Skating – Heerenveen (NED)
Martina Sábliková (CZE) had already secured the World Cup win on the ladies’ long
distances before the final, but put the icing on the cake by also winning the final, ahead of a
strong Dutch contingent, with Ireen Wüst in second and Renate Groenewold in third.
In the overall standings, Sábliková won a clear victory, with Claudia Pechstein (GER) in second. It
is the twelfth time Pechstein finishes in second place in the World Cup, not to mention her
victories. Renate Groenewold took third place overall.
Saturday started off with the second 500 m for both men and ladies. The winners were the
same as the day before, and the same as in the overall World Cup: Jenny Wolf and Jeremy
Wotherspoon. Wolf’s performance was not as good as the day before, but 38.32 was still good
enough to give her the twelfth win of the fourteen World Cup races this season. Sang-Hwa
Lee repeated her second place from the day before, and this helped her to a third place overall
behind Gerritsen in second. For the Dutch home crowd, the main drama was the
disqualification of Marianne Timmer at the start.
