Sochi Olympics, ladies speedskating 1500m results: Netherlands sweeps medal podium

The Netherlands have been dominant on the ice at Adler Arena Skating Center during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, and they have proven that once again on Sunday morning by completing a clean sweep of the medal podium in the ladies speed skating 1500m.

Jorien Ter Mors, who made her name on the short track, was able to put together an incredible race to capture the gold with an Olympic record time of 1:53.51. The previous record of 1:54.02 was set by Anni Friesinger of Germany in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

Ireen Wust took home silver for the Dutch and claimed her third medal of the Sochi Games in the process.

Lotte Van Beek  finished in third-place to capture the bronze.

To add one on for good measure, Marrit Leenstra finished in fourth place to give the Dutch places one through four.

That is one way to make your nation proud.
