Ireen Wüst has won the 3000-meter title at the speedskating single-distance world championships at the Bavarian resort of Inzell. She beat the other favourite, Czech Republic’s Martina Sablikova, by just half a second.

Germany’s Stephanie Beckert came in third, three seconds after Wüst.

The Dutch champion clinched the women's world allround title in Calgary a month ago. At 24, Wüst is now the most successful Dutch speed skater on World Cup distance ever.
