A time of 1:53.92minutes was good enough to see off the challenge of American duo Heather Richardson-Bergma and Brittany Bowe and win a sixth gold for the Netherlands, equalling the competition record set in 2013.

Lee Seung-Hoon then became the first Korean skater, male or female, to win a world title in another event than a 500m, when he won the men’s mass start in 7:18.26minutes.

And the final event of the Championships, the women's mass start, was won by Canada's Ivanie Blondin in 8:17.53 minutes.
