1ST LEAD Ter Mors seals surprise 1,000m speed skating gold By Barry Whelan, dpa

Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - Dutch skater Jorien ter Mors broke the Olympic record to seal gold in the women‘s 1,000 metres speed skating on Wednesday, as the Netherlands continued their domination.

Ter Mors became the fifth Dutch skater out of five to win speed skating golds so far in Pyeongchang after setting 1 minute 13.56 seconds.

Japan‘s Nao Kodaira grabbed silver, 0.26 seconds back, with compatriot Miho Takagi third.

The Japanese duo had been eyeing the country‘s first Olympic women‘s speed skating gold, but can at least console themselves with becoming only the second and third Japanese speed skaters to claim multiple medals at the Winter Games.

Ter Mors, 28, took two golds at Sochi 2014 in the 1,500m and team pursuit, meaning she still has a perfect record at Winter Games having only competed in three events.

She was world champion at this distance in 2016, but Takagi was still seen as the big favourite heading into the race at a noisy Gangneung Oval.

"I had a lot of struggles at the beginning of the season. I did some changes towards the Olympics and it paid off so I‘m happy to be here as Olympic champion. It means a lot," she told reporters.

It was a record-equalling fourth Olympic gold for the Netherlands in the women‘s 1,000m but, having gone out as the 12th of 16 pairs, Ter Mors had an anxious wait for glory.

"That‘s always hard because you already raced and you did everything you could and then you have to wait," she added.

"But you can‘t do anything anymore so it‘s nerve-wracking."

There was more disappointment for American world champion Heather Bergsma as an Olympic medal again eluded her in eighth while Ireen Wust of the Netherlands had to settle for ninth, having won the 1,500m on Monday.
