Stefan Groothuis of the Netherlands wins Olympic gold in men's 1,000-meter speedskating.
Exhausted, Stefan Groothuis sat on an infield bench and started choking up as he saw one challenger after another falter.

Among the other gold medalists were speedskater Stefan Groothuis, who added to the mighty haul of the Dutch at the oval; Eric Frenzel of Germany, who has been the steadiest in Nordic combined the last two years; and Kaitlyn Farrington of the United States, who defeated defending champion Torah Bright in the women's halfpipe.
