Suzanne Schulting and Sjinkie Knegt won 1,000 and 1,500 meters of gold at the second World Cup this season in Salt Lake City on Saturday.
For Schulting it means his third world cup victory at the start of this season. A week earlier, 21-year-old Groningen in Calgary won over 1,000 and 1,500 meters.
In Salt Lake City, Schulting returned to being the best in 1,000 meters, a distance where he could call himself an Olympic champion. Yara van Kerkhof also reached the final, but finished fifth and final. Lara van Ruijven won the B-final.
Schulting crossed 1,500 meters in Salt Lake City. The Dutch contribution must come from Rianne de Vries, who won a medal in the final (fourth). The victory went to Choi Min-jeong Korea.
Knegt takes revenge for Calgary
The 29-year-old Knegt took revenge with his gold medal at 1,500 meters in Salt Lake City last week when he was stranded in the semi-final. Frisian dropped in Canada and was punished for overturning South Korea.
Knegt on Friday with the relay team, which consisted of Daan Breeuwsma, Itzhak de Laat and Dennis Visser, was eliminated in the quarterfinals. In Calgary, the Netherlands took bronze above the relay.
