Olympic preview: Can Sven Kramer finally win the 10,000m?

The 10,000m in Pyeongchang will feature the defending Olympic gold medalist (Jorrit Bergsma), the reigning world champion (Sven Kramer), and current world record holder (Ted-Jan Bloemen). Bergsma and Kramer have had an intriguing rivalry over the last several seasons. But Bergsma has struggled this season, missing the World Cup podium and a spot in the 5000m at the Games. An event dominated by Dutch skaters in a Sochi sweep, the men’s 10,000m is certain to have a different outcome in 2018, as the ISU now only allows each country to enter two skaters in the event.
