Men's 500m finals
Women's team pursuit qualifications
500m is starting now!
we haven't had a gold in a while, it's time
tfw NL has the best 3 riders for the 500m but it's not 2 races anymore just the 1 so we might get lucked out of a sweep
Lorentz would normally be the only one able to beat us (tho depending on how much Verbij has recovered from his injury)
This thread feels a little awkward with the women's team pursuit quali being over already
can't do a bradbury
Singles and HHL wins a medal.
USA USA USA
are you ready kids?
I've never watched speed skating before, what do I need to know?
WHAT THE FUCK
Poutala is going to win this, right?
they now become the leaders
yeah no fucking shit they're the first pair
do they make the outside skater start further up, so the distances are the same?
i already know that lol
No, pic related
Its Jimmy Fallon in the baby blue
I fucking love Poutala. Obviously I wish for another sweep, but if not let Poutala have a cheeky bronze
in some distances that is necessary, but here they both start 100m straight from the finish and then both have an outside curve and an inside curve so same distance
World Cup races this season.
TRIPS FOR FINLAND GOLD
I would be really happy with that. Poutala's a great guy, but he's been just that slight distance behind the absolute best throughout his career. I don't think he believes in his win enough to take the gold, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
oh i see, i didn't realize they switched tracks
Can any of these men beat 9.58s for fastest 100m? That's Bolt's WR for fastest on land.
fucking euros. diversify your flags
This is the finals, how many runs do they get?
That US half Griffin guy is a music prodigy that does classic music at Carnegie Hall at 17.
All Russians are banned.
who false started? it didn't look like it
also why don't they give them a starting block?
Every olympian is like that, they all were born into rich privileged families who had them training in their craft as a child.
Our commentator says it's obvious that it was the Italian guy but you could have fooled me
Any chance someone other than the Netherlands wins this one? Who is good?
Usain Bolt can literally run the 100m faster than these manlets can skate it
Never watched one of these cause netherlandswinslol but I heard we have a chance in this one so I'll have a look
tripfag fuck off
Your long track team this year thinks blue makes them go faster. That's all you need to know about it.
Did he dab???
Was that guy dabbing
how are pairs decided, and in what order do they go? are there seeds?
what is friction
Why do Dutchcucks only care about speed skating?
thought that was an emoji
why do they use an electric gun for this (for timing reasons) but a real gun for biathlon, xc, etc?
also i wish the cbc announcer would stop saying "lap and a quarter" before each one
I'd guess because it's inside.
i mean, wouldn't they want to use an electric one for all events, for exact/computer-measured timing reasons?
Lorentzen (norwegian) and Lacroix (Canadian) have a real shot
Pathetic, why does everyone bow to China
I literally know the guy, stop lying about him on the internet lol.
why do they take their hoods off IMMEDIATELY after the finish line?
In staggered-start events like Biathalon everyone's time starts when they cross the starting line, in other words the people in the far back technically start later than the people up front. For that reason the starting line is responsible for starting the timer, not the gun.
At least that's my limited understanding of it.
That's what CBC commentators said.
THE CURSE OF THE SLIP
To show that they have nice hair.
Everyone looks like absolute shit with the hood on.
I'm always surprised when women skate and take off their hood at the end and surprisingly there's a real qt under it
taiwan is not china, the IOC just doesn't want to anger china so they're forced to call it "chinese taipei" (which is a weird meaningless name. taipei is a city)
ah, good point. thanks.
state of polish speedskating
lol pekka :DDDDD
What was that Pole's game plan?
Why are American women so butch dyke?
LMAO BOLAND :DDDDDDDDD
Aw man I feel so bad for that guy kek
Hope the Colombian stays in a medal position. It will be Latin America's first Winter Olympics medal if he does.
nice job Poland
That's gonna leave a big emotional scar.
Time for binland domination
why do you ignore any reply asking you why you use the trip?
question Cred Forums Is this the only race they do?
Would you cut off your penis to be more aerodynamic and save 0.02 seconds to win gold instead of bronze?
it was all an elaborate ruse to sabotage the next runner starting at that position
oh shit its pekka
Just tuned in, what happened to Poland?
poo embarrassing commonwealth again
leave the top 3 as is tbhqwy
GO PEKKA!!!! SUOMI!!!!
kek, cheers m8
implying you need your benis when you have a god spot inside of you bumbum to give you orgasms
implying you wouldnt make a lot more money as a gold medal winner than a bronze winner
Get dat cash homie, chop it off!
Dutchbros, what’s an ‘omloop’ they’re talking about all the time. Something about new rules?
t. speedskating noob
saying "fuck" instead of kurwa
Benis in sbandex :DDD
Ben je kankerdom ofzo? Ff serieus
US fucking up our race
What's with the autistic "gotta get into starting position slowly and then not move at all" rules?
Why does it matter? As long as everyone starts right on time who cares?
Fucking shit sport, give me biathlon back.
wtf is up with the crotch of the us outfit
Smeekens carried the flag
Is he the most decorated speed skater or something? Thought Kramer was.
rip colombia bro :(
that Dutch bulge
Looked fucking quick from the start.
Lad I’m not Dutch, I’m just here.
fucker over by Dutch starters
34,93 shouldn't be good enough for podium RIP sweep
Too slow Smeekens, no medal for you.
haha he's called bum
TAE BUM LMAO
Mika better get a medal
the American blowing his snot onto the ice
I want to stuff my face in their spandex thicc sweaty thighs goddamn
this. can anyone explain?
wasn't japan in first?
Gook was flying kek.
Lol korea choke
Korean choke lmao
Columbian guy lost his place on the podium. Japanese guy still 2nd
Holy shit, the Korean was fast af. But he drifted too much into the outside track.
"russian handkerchief" as we call it here
Tingyu master race
fuck off bitterballen
yeah but colombia was 3rd, first south american medal at the winter games if that held
Ya, they beat Usain in the 100m. The Korean guy that just went got a 9.64s in the first 100m. The whole 500m race is over in under 35 seconds.
When are the canadian skating? those low skill bufoon bore me
putting your hand on the ice
what the fuck
oh i see. sad :(
why isn't joji's outfit pink
How was that a false start? So confused.
13th, 14th and 18th pair. 12th pair now.
In Sochi Smeekens finished second on the 500m with 0.012 seconds difference, and the scoreboard in the stadium showed him in first placed initially. So he thought he won but it was later corrected. It's a little bit of a pity choice but he's also the current world champion on the 500m so it's deserved
How do they have such fluffy hair?
take off hood
hair floofs up like that
Fucking chinks give me your good hair genes
there we have it
kankerchinees ga lekker frietjes bakken
These gooks are fast.
Goddamn squint eyes stealing our medals
Goddamn Chinese people are ugly
Stop responding to tripfags.
fuck off tripfag
gook doesn't mean chinese/japanese, idiot
Is 500m the most popular distance in speedskating? Like how 100m is bigger than 200m/500m/1km/etc in the summer olympics?
Wish there was biathlon every day so I didn't have to watch this
What? No he can't.
Can anyone answer this?
You gonna watch team ski jumping later lad?
I think Norway and Germany are favorites
It's the most exciting distance because of the huge variance
gook doesn't mean chinese/japanese, idiot
hurr durr asians are different
This leaf sucked ass.
got bronze in 2015
won't be top-10 here
Let's see our other 2.
No, I'm getting my hair cut by my novice sister which takes literally 2-3 hours
low-tier humor, try better
I am so looking forward to it
No, the 1500m is considered the King Distance
also take off your fucking trip already you retarded attentionfag
Korea pls go
PLS KEK THE SHITTERLANDS OUT OF GOLD PLS
Because you start behind a line, starting to move before the shot means you get a head start and can cross the line as soon as the shot is fired. This is an advantage if you are able to predict the shot and its 'luck', thus just telling them to stand still until the shot is the most fair solution.
These gooks are fast.
How do they determine who skates in the inside and outside lanes?
Another shit leaf.
Asians win lol
jesus christ, that fucking finish
Fucking superhuman asians
Are you crazy? Watch it while getting that haircut.
what the fuck, is your hair 2m long?
O L Y M P I C
R E C O R D
THAT'S ACTUALLY INSANE
Lowland WR is 34,31 btw
THEY SHOULD HAVE NUKED THESE CHINKS
holy shit, can that record hold? hopefully aquafresh btfo
where are you whiteboys?
It doesn’t really matter since the track is the same distance anyway.
REMOVE NETHERLANDS FROM THE PODIUM YEEEES
NO MEDALS FOR THOSE SHITTERS
Why isnt Apollo Ono racing?
This fucking starter fucking sucks get rid of him
how do they determine the pairs (who skates against who), and the order they go?
She has like a teacher judging it afterwards and has to fix anything she missed. I have normal length hair. Apparently there's all these rules about length and symmetry that hair dressers have to know about. I just thought they cut it until it looked nice.
Just arrived, I'm assuming we got BTFO again as always?
so terrible at speedskating he has to hate on countries who are good.
Just like world wars, right Hans?
Verbij 34.3 incoming and you know it
1. He doesn’t do long track
2. He retired like 8 years ago, man.
He's been shit the whole Olympics. Unnecessarily long.
Not so fast mein freund;)
Surely it matters a bit if you have to take the more narrow inner bend right after the demanding acceleration?
Sorry I have no respect for countries that get all their medals from a single sport.
literally who this olympics
Those wide ass fucking turns.
1 Dutch guy left. Is Verbij any good?
Qualification times: slowest to fastest
It's no fair
tfw he's dutch
It actually kinda matters
Start on the outside and you get the benefit of chasing after the other skater during the trackchange (so slight drafting) BUT it's easier to go top speed in the outside lane so some people prefer having that as their final corner
yfw Dutch don't even medal
this toothpaste fucker will slip
OH BOY HERE WE GO
Koskela did decently, Poutala is in the last pair.
Came back from injury, this'll be his first real race after.
50/50 will do well or choke.
hes a gook
Does the person finishing on the inside lane always win?
They're keeping an eye on false starts better now.
AHAHAHA IT'S OVER FOR NEDDERKEKS
WHAT IS HAPPENING
DAMN NORWAY are you serious
H Å V A R D
Those suits are a lot less thick than I expected.
Why does it look like they're really slowing down at the finish? They're just exhausted?
CAN'T STOP WINNING
FUCK NOT NORWAY THEY CAN'T GET ANY MORE GOLD NO THIS ISN'T WHAT I WANTED I TAKE IT ALL BACK PLS GIVE IT TO NETHERLANDS
Norge takes gold
IT'S NOT FAIR
Based verbij will win anyway you cucks
CHEEKY NORWAY GOLD?!
WTF I didn't want that give the medal to Netherlands after all
fuck off mof
possibly can get a guld in something other than skiing
HOW WILL KOREA EVER RECOVER
At first place where we belong
Hahahah this thread :d gz asthmabros
H-hey sorry Netherbros can you pls get gold after all?
We can't let Norway get more gold medals okay? We're bros.
Based Valhalla cleaning up at the Olympics
Time to get on the Ventolin.
Why are skaters faster in higher altitudes?
That's lewd af. Is he adopted or some shit?
They already have medals in other stuff.
I think we might see a WR lads
Never liked this gay sport anyway lmao

Lead by 0.2 seconds
Finish 0.4 seconds behind
What a choke.
SAVE US BINLAND
Wtf is with these Asians. Fast 100m, shit in 500m.
expecting a medal on 500m
FINLAND OR CANADA PLS MAKE THE MIRACLE HAPPEN
WE NEED TO STOP NORGE
It's no use
AND THE DUTCH ARE SEETHING
ORANGEFAGS gloating that they will sweep the medals
get BTFO by Asia and one random Norwegian whoss probably doping.
counting on binland to win
They get the inside curve , so they have an easier early time, but then they lose it by going wide in the next.
will finland win it all? go suomi!!!
Yellow men getting cucked.
DO IT POUTALA
fuuuuuuuuug :DDDD :D
no medal again
GULL GULL GULL
DET BLIR GULL
DET BLIR GULL
DET BLIR GULL
DET BLIR GULL
GULL GULL GULL
I knew it
the gook is random not the norwegian guy
God damnit, btfo by just .01 seconds, I am definitely mad
FUCK THIS SHIT
A S T H M A
fucked another good start
everybody who finishes on the inside wins
Getting the noose atm. Can't fucking believe this
i just want finland to win something ;_;
hello did we just win gold?
Finland: the fourth place winners of the world
Nooooooo Mika ;_;
Eternal 4th Poutala
NO LEAF INSIDE TOP-10
GAY SPORT GAY SPORT GAY SPORT
This is why they used to do 2 races, one starting inside and one outside.
You did. Congratulations!
FUCK OFF HAHAHAHA SHITINLAND NO GOLD HAHAHA.
this is bullshit, its the same distance and it means you can chase your contestant after the first turn which helps (usually)
DEN GLIDER INN
Must've taken some of Norway's ski team medicine
FIRST 500M GOLD SINCE 1948
Poutala still did pretty well. Our guys were nervous as fuck unfortunately
Tainted Norway medal, his coach is Canadian, he trains in Canada...
shit sport tb h
I hereby demand IOC to ban Finland from participating in olympics forever to save our face.
WE. CAN'T. WIN.
Fuck Harvard niggers. Yale 4 Life.
shut up k*ppers
sounds like canada got cucked.
GZ norway, alpha white male btfo's chinks, i'm happy
Fucking norway !
Can we ban asthma pumpers with anabolics next olympics?
What the fuck is this shit...
business idea: shadow ban all tripfags
I can't fucking watch this anymore.
First the chokes in xc and biathlon and now this. I feel so bad for Mika. That 50km classic will be nerve-racking
They could also do it like the cycling where they start on opposite sides of the ring. That way both people get the same inside/outside route.
Finland says inside his lane around the final corner
I wonder which lane is better to start in
he hasn't filtered queerpers already
It's 6 Am and I'm drunk and watch Coaches Corner featuring Laura Dyken
How come South Korea is so shit in team pursuit? Their individual skaters are good at speed/short track, but their team pursuit is garbage.
wow, first Norwegian 500m gold in 70 years
Norway is en-route to beat the all-time gold record at the Winter Olympics. Canada won 14 in Vancouver 2010.
I might kill myself
this is tasteless. glad you didn't win
gold again tonight and tomorrow. ez
pls no ;_;
I'm actually going crazy, we're wasting our money on these losers
hopefully we win team skijumping today aswell
IT WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS
Tanks Canada for Jeremy Wotherspoon
can you lads teach me some finnish curse words
You still have hockey today.
Nah, saatana vittu perkele is basic
please don't <3
Vitun aussirunkkari, pidä turpas kiinni perkele. Saatana ebin :Dd
Traitor to Canada. He doesn't train Canadians.
thanks ioc for banning the russians
never could've done it without your help bros
What race is going on now? My broadcast isn't live I guess
Well, congrats to Canadians aswell :P
CUT MY GOLD INTO PIECES
THESE ARE MY FINAL GAMES
what are the translations, i assume google translate fucks them up
that cheeky unexpected gold while every Norwegian's eyes are on the ski jumping event instead
shit, sorry for you
that gigantic moose knuckle
He was one of the big favourites mate
Now Cha grabbing the cheeky silver, THAT was unexpected
Be prepared for that young chinese bronze to dominate in the coming years btw
Not really that unexpected, only Mulder was a bigger favourite.
Ruotsalainen = Swedish
Saatana = satan
vittu = fuck / pussy
Perkele doesn't have proper translation, devil is the closest
Other called you aussie fucker and told you to shut the fuck up
We're back in the saddle boys
After 5 decades
Sweden and Finland can't into gold so Norway stacks them up by using asthma
Why not pretend you have """asthma""" problems as well???
If Norway can cheat so can others.
just admit he was doping and fuck off
EVERY FUCKING TIME
U okay there bud
Ruotsalainen = Swedish
finnish is fucked up
i say this as someone who speaks hungarian
Oh shit, the Noraway guy should brace for twitter/instagram terror by the Koreans.
what the fuck finland ;_;
Murdersled back on. Tune in to see Germany get BTFO.
olympics looked comfy as fuck back then. they were like running in someone's backyard
Words to live by :^)
Hungarian is close to Finnish
He was clearly joking, you told him to curse.
I'm angry because Norway trains here and they will break Canada's Vancouver gold record.
It's not fair! Winter is Canada's sport!
Can someone post to /wsg/ with a webm of the winning race?
i know, that's my point
hand over your gold and your lunch money loser
i was just pretending to be angry but seriously norway stop doping your athletes
on Cred Forums
kek, go back to plebbit if you are soft
hurr durr muh masculinity
A Norwegian was 0.002 away from winning the silver on the 5000m just a week ago. Glad we had the luck on our side this time.
Norways first gold medal in speed skating in 20 years
KONGENS MEDALJE NÅ
Inside lane wins
is there a rule saying how long your skate can be?
You'd be at a disadvantage if you had any longer skates, just look at this guy
i would imagine they are standardised
it's measured to the foot, not the skate
might have to do with slipstream
but on the image the lines are at the tip of the skate
i know, but from what i know it's actually measured to the foot
This is incorrect. Whoever breaks the line with their blade first wins.
norway bros, you have a good chance at another gold in ski jump event
I don't know if this is bait or not.
weird. 's point is correct then
don't reply to tripfags
They're not really standarised, if you have smaller feet your blades are shorter.
perhaps it is like 1.2x your foot size
would make more sense to just time it on the foot wouldnt it?
Feels good to win bronze lads, seeing as norgay roidmonkeys victory is illegitimate
since shoes generally have a rounded tip, it is probably hard to measure
Don't you have a sauna contract to sign or something?
how the mighty have fallen
Don't you have some steroids to take? Your country is cheating and should be banned for life
Preach it, Pekka!
I'd be more worried about Kuzmina passing the piss test. Beat Dahlmaier who had the 3rd fastest course time by 1 minute and 10 seconds on the Individual. Once a Russian, always a Russian.
How many boring skate competitions are there? I swear skating is the swimming of the Winter Olympics.
let’s skate fast! Now let’s skate fast over a different distance! Now let’s skate fas5 over 20 more arbitrarily chosen distances! Yay! Hup Holland!
Boring as shit.
