Sven Kramer, 23 April 1986




Once again the scales tipped over to the Dutch. This time it was Sven Kramer, son of previous speed skater Yep Kramer (silver medal in the European Allround Championship 1983), who was dominating the longer distances. In December 2004 he won the Dutch Allround Championships at just 18 years old. Sven became World Allround Champion 2007-2017, except for the years 2011 and 2014, i.e. 9 titles. He has two individual Olympic goldmedals so far, both on 5000m; Vancouver in 2010 and Sotji in 2014. Although being the favorite on the 10000 m in Vancouver, he was disqualified for not changing lanes, giving Lee Seung-Hoon the opportunity to grab Korea’s first ever long-track medal, and a gold it was. To date, Sven also has 13 individual gold medals from Single Distance World Championships (5000 and 10000m).
