  1. At the first Junior World Cup weekend of this year, some highlights for me: Diego Amaya and Nil Llop were the two best male skaters in their age category (B2 = born in 2003) in the men's 1.000m. Amaya finished in 11th place behind 10 juniors all at least one year older, but most of them two years older. So that's a good thing. Llop finished in 11/59 in the 500m Szymon Wojtakowski is also a very exciting prospect, born in 2005 finishing 15/60 on the same 1.000m for boys, in 1.15.21, which is an impressive time for a 14 year old on an outdoor rink. On the womens side, I noted more and more skaters from non-traditional speed skating countries such as and especially . If the Spanish skaters keep progressing, we might see a solid Spanish team pursuit / team sprint team in the future. On the girls' side, is (too) dominant, winning all events, on the men's side had the highest number of podium places and wins, even in the longer distances.
  2. An update of the National Records skated so far this season. Not much has changed compared to the last update two weeks ago: Women 500m Victoria RODRIGUEZ 38,84 Salt Lake City (USA) 16-nov-19 Stien VANHOUTTE 39,83 Inzell (GER) 12-okt-19 Luisa GONZALEZ SALAZAR 41,45 Inzell (GER) 2-nov-19 Katarina JANKOVIC 47,66 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Niginabonu JAMOLIDDINOVA 49,19 Minsk (BLR) 1-nov-19 1.000m Victoria RODRIGUEZ 1.19,83 Salt Lake City (USA) 16-nov-19 Larissa PAES 1.26,24 Salt Lake City (USA) 19-sep-19 Katarina JANKOVIC 1.40,79 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Niginabonu JAMOLIDDINOVA 1.42,00 Minsk (BLR) 1-nov-19 1.500m Larissa PAES 2.13,77 Milwaukee (USA) 27-okt-19 Niginabonu JAMOLIDDINOVA 2.39,38 Minsk (BLR) 3-nov-19 3.000m Saskia ALUSALU 4.07,43 Inzell (GER) 13-okt-19 Gemma Cooper 4.21,14 Inzell (GER) 8-nov-19 Larissa PAES 4.47,12 Milwaukee (USA) 25-okt-19 5.000m Isabelle WEIDEMANN 6.47,37 Calgary (CAN) 18-okt-19 Valentina ESPINOSA 7.54,94 Salt Lake City (USA) 12-okt-19 Men 500m Nil LLOP 36,42 Heerenveen (NED) 6-okt-19 Miodrag POPOVIC 43,79 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Azizmurod SHABAZOV 43,88 Minsk (BLR) 1-nov-19 Rory MCCARTHY 46,31 Breda (NED) 26-okt-19 1.000m NING Zhongyan 1.07,73 Calgary (CAN) 20-sep-19 Stefan DUE SCHMIDT 1.12,21 Salt Lake City (USA) 31-aug-19 Azizmurod SHABAZOV 1.27,66 Minsk (BLR) 1-nov-19 1.500m NING Zhongyan 1.43,35 Calgary (CAN) 21-sep-19 João Victor DA SILVA 1.57,04 Salt Lake City (USA) 21-sep-19 Miodrag POPOVIC 2.12,43 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Azizmurod SHABAZOV 2.17,63 Minsk (BLR) 3-nov-19
  3. That's also because there are so many World Championships: World Single Distances Championships, World Allround Championships, World Sprint Championships. And these are all in February / March, so it doesn't make sense to be at your best now for the World Cups.
  4. team for the first World Cups: Women: Jutta Leerdam (20) - 500m, 1.000m Michelle de Jong (20) - 500m Dione Voskamp (22) - 500m Esmee Visser (23) - 3.000m, 5.000m Sanneke de Neeling (23) - 500m Antoinette de Jong (24) - 1.000m, 1.500m, 3.000m, 5.000m Melissa Wijfje (24) - 1.500m, 3.000m Reina Anema (26) - 1.500m, 3.000m, 5.000m Letitia de Jong (26) - 1.000m Irene Schouten (27) - 5.000m Jorien ter Mors (29) - 500m, 1.000m, 1.500m Carlijn Achtereekte (29) - 3.000m, 5.000m Ireen Wüst (33) - 1.000m, 1.500m Men: Marwin Talsma (21) - 10.000m Marcel Bosker (22) - 1.500m, 5.000m, 10.000m Patrick Roest (23) - 1.500m, 5.000m, 10.000m Dai Dai Ntab (25) - 500m, 1.000m Kai Verbij (25) - 500m, 1.000m Lennart Velema (26) - 500m Thomas Krol (27) - 1.000m, 1.500m Kjeld Nuis (30) - 1.000m, 1.500m Hein Otterspeer (31) - 500m, 1.000m Ronald Mulder (33) - 500m Sven Kramer (33) - 1.500m, 5.000m Jorrit Bergsma (33) - 5.000m, 10.000m Douwe de Vries (37) - 5.000m, 10.000m About half of the men's team is 30 years or older, whereas the women's team is way more balanced age-wise. On the women's side the qualification events were won by Esmee Visser (3.000m and 5.000m) and Jorien ter Mors (500m, 1.000m, and 1.500m). On the men's side, we had four different winners: Dai Dai Ntab (500m), Kai Verbij (1.000m), Kjeld Nuis (1.500m), and Patrick Roest (5.000m and 10.000m). Kai Verbij and Patrick Roest (10.000m) won in impressive track records. Sven Kramer failed to qualify for the 10.000m by 0,72 seconds.
  5. Depends on the weather. Pray for the coldest winter in decades and you might see one. So probably not. Gonna post a full update of the national records in two weeks or so, but I noticed that Luisa Gonzalez Salazar, a 16-year old skater, skated 41,45 in Inzell. Not a poor time at all. Last year October her PB was 43,93. If she keeps developing at this pace, I'm wondering if she could qualify for Beijing 2022? Niginabonu Jamoliddinova also improved her PB on the 500m with 4 seconds in less than a week (1st November 2019: 49,19; 26th October 2019: 53,57, both times skated in Minsk) . Still far from times that could help her come close to Olympic qualification, but she is 15 years old, so enough time to develop.
  6. He's 39 years old, but this is the only time of him on the 1.500 that's even been published.
  7. Here are some national records skated up until 01-11-2019, with one very impressive time on the women's 5.000m by Isabelle Weideman. Women 500m Stien VANHOUTTE 39,83 Inzell (GER) 12-okt-19 Luisa GONZALEZ SALAZAR 42,06 Inzell (GER) 5-okt-19 Katarina JANKOVIC 47,66 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Niginabonu JAMOLIDDINOVA 53,57 Minsk (BLR) 26-okt-19 1.000m Larissa PAES 1.26,24 Salt Lake City (USA) 19-sep-19 Katarina JANKOVIC 1.40,79 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 1.500m Larissa PAES 2.13,77 Milwaukee (USA) 27-okt-19 Niginabonu JAMOLIDDINOVA 2.45,19 Minsk (BLR) 26-okt-19 3.000m Saskia ALUSALU 4.07,43 Inzell (GER) 13-okt-19 Larissa PAES 4.47,12 Milwaukee (USA) 25-okt-19 5.000m Isabelle WEIDEMANN 6.47,37 Calgary (CAN) 18-okt-19 Valentina ESPINOSA 7.54,94 Salt Lake City (USA) 12-okt-19 Men 500m Nil LLOP 36,42 Heerenveen (NED) 6-okt-19 Rory MCCARTHY 46,31 Breda (NED) 26-okt-19 Miodrag POPOVIC 43,79 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Azizmurod SHABAZOV 46,55 Minsk (BLR) 26-okt-19 1.000m NING Zhongyan 1.07,73 Calgary (CAN) 20-sep-19 Stefan DUE SCHMIDT 1.12,21 Salt Lake City (USA) 31-aug-19 1.500m NING Zhongyan 1.43,35 Calgary (CAN) 21-sep-19 João Victor DA SILVA 1.57,04 Salt Lake City (USA) 21-sep-19 Miodrag POPOVIC 2.12,43 Heerenveen (NED) 20-jul-19 Azizmurod SHABAZOV 2.26,56 Minsk (BLR) 26-okt-19
  8. After playing every week since the US Open and after losing all five previous matches against Barty. Insane.
  9. The combination of speed (3:51 on the 1.500m) and endurance. She was so much better than her competitors in both distances.
  10. I haven’t trusted Hassan since she moved to Salazar. She has great talent, but this is just extreme.
  11. Why is this event so early in the day. In the US, nobody is awake. This doesn't make sense to me at all.
  12. destroyed (2016 Olympic Champions) with 8-0 in the semi finals, which means that they have scored 22 goals in a row now without conceiving one. Not bad after the sub-par start of the tournament.
