Dutchman Nuis wins gold in men’s 1,000 metres speed skating, secures golden double

The 28-year-old Nuis, who also won gold in the 1,500m, took a quick glance at the big screen inside the Oval as he crossed the finish line before raising his arms in celebration.

The Dutch have won 18 medals at the Games and all have come in skating events, with 14 on the long track and four, including one gold, in the short track events.

Nuis, who placed first in the distance at the world single distance championships in Gangneung, was the first reigning world champion to win Olympic gold in men’s 1,000m.

He was also the third man to win the 1,000m and 1,500m at the same Winter Olympics, after American Eric Heiden in 1980 and Canada’s Gaetan Boucher in 1984.
