Huang Yu-ting won Chinese Taipei's first-ever speed skating gold medal at an international event as she triumphed in the women's 1,000 metres race on the final day of the International Skating Union's Four Continents Championships.

The skater described her success at the Olympic Oval as "a dream" after she clocked 1min 14.15sec to secure victory.

"If I can show people that I can win a medal, a lot of [inline] skaters [from Chinese Taipei] will be really interested to switch to ice," Huang said.

"If they want to switch to ice, I really want to help them.

"I have that experience.

"So I can guide them."
