Ted-Jan Bloemen (CAN) broke Jorrit Bergsma’s (NED) recently set Olympic record by more than two seconds to win the 10,000m Olympic gold medal. "This is the biggest stage we can compete on. If you can win here it’s that’s the highest you can get. Everything was set for this competition," Bloemen said after the race. "It’s been such a long road towards this competition. I was happy with my race." Bloemen is the first Canadian to win the 10,000m gold.
