    Aren't we Dutch...............

    ........... incredible at this skating lark?

    Long track
    Women's 3000m Gold, silver and bronze
    Men's 5000M Gold
    Women's 1500m Gold and bronze
    Men's 1500m Gold and silver

    Short track
    Men's 1500m Silver
    Women's 500m Silver

    That's 10 medals already and there are more to come on the ice.

    Why are the Dutch serially brilliant at speed skating? I have no idea but they have a huge love relationship with skating. I do know what the reason isn't. A US commentator told his public it's because the Dutch skate to work every day LOL roll

    Women's 5000m - Gold

    Men's 10,000m - Silver. The gold was won by Dutch born Ted-Jan Bloemen who transferred to skating for Canada (his father is Canadian) a few years back as he couldn't get a place on the Dutch team

    7 Golds on the 400m track so far, 6 went to the Dutch team and the 7th to a Dutch born skater...... Pretty damned dominant in my eyes.

    Back to being British today. Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas currently 3rd and 4th after the 1st 2 runs of the skeleton respectively 0.1 and 0.17 seconds behind the leader. Very good chance of 1 and maybe 2 medals. Go girls!!

    Women's 3000m short track relay bronze for we Dutchies.....

    Possibly the weirdest medal of these games. The Dutch qualified for the B final (5th to 8th place). They won it in a new Olympic record time. Then came the A final. 4 seconds slower than the B final. 2 of the 4 teams were disqualified so the Dutch were promoted to 3rd place and the bronze medal.

    Fastest team on the day and finished 3rd in a competition they were supposed to be 5th, at best, in.

    Have the organisers been smoking a Dutchy whilst arriving at this decision?

    All of these medals for the Dutch team! Bet that more than makes up for their non attendance in Russia this summer
