Kramer wins 1500 meter
Dutch skater Sven Kramer surprised many of his critics by winning the 1500 meter race at the KNSB skating week in Thialf.
The Dutch Skating Association KNSB is currently holding trials for next year’s European Championships in Budapest.
Kramer’s time - 1:47:33 – means he is almost certain of a spot in the national squad. However, the team won’t be named until after Wednesday’s 5,000 meter races.
