The Netherlands won all four gold medals on the second day of the International Skating Union (ISU) European Speed Skating Championships in Heerenveen to continue their dominance in the sport.

Success started in the men's team sprint with the trio of Merijn Scheperkamp, Kai Verbij and Tijmen Snel winning the gold medal in a time of 1min 19.712sec at Thialf, just over a tenth of a second in front of Norway, represented by Bjørn Magnussen, Henrik Fagerli Rukke and Håvard Holmefjord Lorentzen.

Completing the podium was Poland's Mark Kania, Damian Zurek and Piotr Michalski, who fended off Germany, Italy and Belarus for bronze.

Femke Kok claimed the women's 500 metres title in 37.325sec, in front of the Russian chasers of Angelina Golikova and Daria Kachanova, who took silver and bronze, respectively.

Patrick Roest led a one-two for the home nation in the men's 5,000m with Jorrit Bergsma, beating his compatriot by nearly two seconds in a time of 6:11.545.

Hallgeir Engebråten of Norway took the bronze medal close behind Bergsma, as Bart Swings of Belgium and Russian Sergey Trofimov finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Completing the clean sweep was Antoinette de Jong as she triumphed in the women's 1,500m in a time of 1:53.812, with her team mate Ireen Wüst finishing second.

Bronze went to Francesca Lollobrigida from Italy, denying an all-Dutch podium, as Marijke Groenewoud finished fourth.

Russian athletes were cleared to compete at the Championships after missing the first day due to positive COVID-19 cases within their camp.

Five-time champion Pavel Kulizhnikov was one of four athletes who were withdrawn due to positive tests.

The others were Ruslan Murashov, Viktor Mushtakov and Artem Arefyev.
