Explaining the Crazy Dutch Love of Speed Skating

The Dutch Get Their First Gold in Vancouver!
Explaining the Crazy Dutch Love of Speed Skating

VANCOUVER, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Sven Kramer banished his painful memories of Turin four years ago with a dominating performance to win the Olympic 5,000 metres Speed Skating GOLD MEDAL on Saturday.

"This is the biggest one," the powerful Dutchman told reporters after claiming his first Olympic Gold. "This is the most important one."

Kramer waited four years to wash away his disappointment in Turin where he had to settle for Silver in the 5,000 and lost what seemed a near certain Dutch gold in the Team Pursuit when he fell and they ended up with Bronze.

"The pressure was so high in Holland and yeah, I said, 'I must do this.' Finally, I'm pretty happy."

As for the photos ~ I will leave it to those who are in them to claim them! Are we to visualize André's beautiful locks in orange today too?!? ;-)
