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 2007-2010, and was European Champion during the same years. He has two individual Olympic medals so far; a silver medal on 5000 m from Turin 2006 (after Chad Hedrick), and a gold medal on the same distance from Vancouver in 2010. 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 6 individual gold medals from Single Distance World Championships.
