Is that longtrack and shorttrack combined?

The Netherlands dominated Olympic speed skating like that exactly once, in Sochi. It would be a miracle if that happens again in 2018, it's just not realistic to expect anything close to Sochi (when literally everything fell exactly in place). Even in the most Dutch of all distances, the 10k, the best guy in the world right now is Canadian ;) (although he used to represent the Netherlands)

 

And a decent medal chance means that a medal is at least realistically possible, let's say at least 15-20% chance. Peter Michael normally won't medal for New Zealand, but his incredibly impressive debut season shows that he definitely does have more than just a very small chance :)

I'll be very clever and say Senegal might have a medal chance in longtrack....

Can you work out why?

I doubt Daidai Ntab will represent Senegal if he keeps closing in on the Dutch sprinting top, but if he can't quite get there...who knows, it would be just brilliant :d
