    Ireen Wüst
    SPEED SKATING
    Regarded as the most successful speed skater ever, Ireen Wüst first achieved a spot in the Dutch Olympic team in 2006. In Turin, she became the youngest Dutch gold medalist at the Winter Games, starting a sequence of results that would made history. Winning at least one gold medal in each of her Winter Olympic appearances, she is the only athlete to win an individual gold medal in five consecutive Olympics, Summer or Winter. Not only she is the most successful athlete from the Netherlands at the Olympics, in Beijing she also became the oldest Speed Skating gold medalist in the history of the Winter Games. "Words can't describe her class", said fellow competitor Brittany Bowe after the 1500m event at the 2022 Olympics; "she is the greatest of all-time, as her performance shows". Indeed, Wüst's career more than earned her a place in our Hall of Fame.

    By far the hardest choice will be the women's award. How are you going to choose between:
    Irene Schouten (3g 1b Olympics, World champion all-round, 3g European Championships)
    Suzanne Schulting (2g 1s 1b Olympics)
    Ireen Wust (gold at 5 Olympic Games in a row)
    Femke Bol (2s indoor worlds, 2s outdoor worlds, 3g European Championships) 
    Annemiek van Vleuten (world champion and all three grand tours).
    And that's ignoring Karolien Florijn, Marrit Steenbergen, Xandra Velzeboer and Jessica Schilder who all had exceptionally strong years as well.
     
    On the men's side I fear Max Verstappen will take the award again, though for me Fabio Jakobsen is the winner.
     
    For the team prize I'd go for either the womens short track relay or womens 4x400m relay. For the coach either Laurent Meuwly or Jamilon Mülders. I don't know enough about the paralympic sports, but it's probably between Jetze Plat and Diede de Groot there.
     
    There's no longlist for the talent awards, but two big contenders for me are Niels Laros (athletics) and Fem van Empel (cycling).

    No, not really. Nuis missed the World Cup qualification tournament 3 weeks ago, because he got a groin injury a couple days before.
     
    So Nuis couldn't compete and therefore didn't qualify for these World Cups. However, the national skating federation decided to give him a chance this week over a skater who qualified. Some analysts and journalists were questioning publicly if Nuis would have the level to compete against the best here, only a couple of weeks after his injury.
     
    Guess this was a sign to them to shut up.

    Well, it was good while it lasted, the Liu brother will chance their nationality, they won't race under the  flag anymore. It's not official which country they will chose, but it's pretty obvious that  finally got them. I honestly thought that this will happen before Beijing 2022, so I am just glad that we had them for this long and won 2 gold medals with them. It is what it is, Hungarian short track will never ever be as successful as it was with them. I doubt that we will see any Hungarian medals at the Winter Games in the near future. 
     
    Edit: Congrats @Vic Liu, you will have an even stronger short track team if they will indeed go to your country.

    Xandra Velzeboer has just OBLITERATED the 500m WR by half a second 
    41.936 -> 41.416 
    And the times overall aren't this good, she's really standing out on her own. Her start is not particularly strong, I guess she could take a second off it in a mixed race.

    apparently has money issues and will join later this season.
     
    They lost their head coach as she moved back to China and works there now. The Liu brothers moved to China to follow her, and there are some rumors they will represent China in the future.
