The world single distances speed skating championships produced two world records Friday. And, for the first time, a non-Dutch winner of the men’s 10,000m.
Graeme Fish led a Canadian one-two in the 10,000m, clocking 12:33.86 to take 2.44 seconds off silver medalist Ted-Jan Bloemen‘s world record from 2015. Full results are here.
The Netherlands was shut out of the medals altogether in an event it won at all 19 prior world championships.
Fish, a 22-year-old from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, is in his first full season of senior racing at the top international level.
