The opening ceremonies of the Beijing Winter Olympics have passed and now it’s time to get down to brass tax: Let’s hand out some medals! Gold, silver and bronze will be won in six events on Saturday.
The women’s 3000m speed skating event should be very intriguing. The Netherlands swept the podium during the 2018 Winter Olympics, and gold medalist Carlijn Achtereekte and bronze medalist Antoinette De Jong are back for more in Beijing. But they will have to fend off Chechia’s Martina Sablikova, who set the world record in this event in 2019.
