Races[edit]

WC 1, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States, 11–13 November[edit]

The first World Cup meet of the season was held in the Utah Olympic Oval, which last staged an international meet in March, the 2007 World Single Distance Speed Skating Championships. The meet resulted in three world records and one equalled world record in the first four races for men, like in the meet held here during the 2005–06 season, when six races resulted in four world records.

Defending World Cup champion Wolf in second place was half a second ahead of any competition, though only Wang's time was in the all time top ten. In the final pair, Sayuri Yoshii of Japan took her first World Cup podium since December, while World Single Distance bronze medallist Sayuri Osuga took 13th and last year's World Cup runner-up Lee Sang-hwa finished 17th.

Wotherspoon, starting in the 11th of 15 pairs, returned to the international speed skating circuit after a one-year absence by smashing the world record set by Lee Kang-seok at the World Single Distance Championships in March, taking the record for the first time since March 2001. After the previous six years had seen the record lowered by 0.07 seconds, Wotherspoon cut 0.22 off the record. Three pairs later, Lee Kyou-hyuk bettered his personal best in the 14th pair, making the fifth-fastest time ever in a pair where former world record holder Joji Kato took a tumble, before Lee Kang-seok rounded off the race by recording the second-fastest time ever in the final pair.[1] Last season's World Cup winner and WSD bronze medallist Tucker Fredricks finished 11th, 100m World Cup winner and WSD silver medallist Yūya Oikawa 12th.

2.  Anni Friesinger (GER) 1:14.29
3.  Wang Fei (CHN) 1:14.31
Starting in the 7th of 15th pairs, Wang Beixing took her second World Cup after skating the first 600m in 44.81, nearly four-tenths of a second ahead of any competition. Though her final lap only came sixth, it was good enough to win her first race on the 1000m, after five race wins on the 500m. Anni Friesinger, who finished first or second on the distance in all her eight major international starts last season, took second, while Wang Fei took her first podium place after beating Canada's Christine Nesbitt, WSD bronze medallist in 2007 by 0.01 seconds on the final lap; the two had identical passing times at the 600m mark. 2007 World Cup winner Chiara Simionato took 5th, the 2007 WSD gold medallist, Ireen Wüst finished 7th, while world record holder Cindy Klassen placed 11th.

The day of world records was not over. After 2006 Olympic gold medallist and 2007 World Cup runner-up Enrico Fabris of Italy had taken the lead in the 13th of 15 pairs, 2007 World Cup winner and WSD silver medallist Erben Wennemars faced world record holder and 2007 WSD gold medallist Davis in the penultimate pair. Davis had been involved in a conflict with US Speedskating and had threatened to not start at the meet, but after late negotiations he had turned up at the start.[2] Wennemars took an early lead of four-tenths of a second, and despite a good second lap by Davis, he was never quite able to beat the Dutch skater. Wennemars was behind Davis' world record lap times from Calgary throughout the race, but a final lap of 27.56 saw him equal the world record mark, lowering his personal best by nearly half a second; Davis took to second place six-tenths behind. In the final pair, Denny Morrison skated the race's fastest third lap with 25.95, distancing pairmate Yevgeny Lalenkov by half a second, and was just one tenth behind Wennemars when the bell rang for the final lap, but was unable to keep up the pace to the end.

2.  Wang Beixing (CHN) 37.45
3.  Sayuri Yoshii (JPN) 37.90
Wang and Wolf faced off once more, and with last outer lane, Wolf took the win and joined Wang on top of the aggregate World Cup standings. Gerritsen, who finished fourth yesterday, struggled at the start in her pair with Yoshii due to hearing a whistle for a false start,[3] and finished 16th, though only half a second behind Yoshii.
Men

ISU
1.  Pekka Koskela (FIN) 1:07.00 WR 4.  Lee Kyou-hyuk (KOR); 5.  Erben Wennemars (NED); 6.  Simon Kuipers (NED); 7.  Yevgeny Lalenkov (RUS); 8.  Mun Jun (KOR); 9.  Jan Bos (NED); 10.  Dmitry Lobkov (RUS); B 1.  Lee Ki-ho (KOR)
2.  Shani Davis (USA) 1:07.18
3.  Jeremy Wotherspoon (CAN) 1:07.34
Koskela, ranked seventh on the World Cup list last season, took his second 1000m race win by beating Shani Davis' two-year-old world record by 0.03 seconds. Earlier, in the seventh pair, Jeremy Wotherspoon had clocked 40.62 over 600 metres, with his second full lap faster than on his world record race yesterday; his last lap was only the 16th best of the 27 finishers. Koskela was three-tenths of a second slower over 600 metres, but had a better finish. In the 13th pair, Lee Kyou-hyuk matched Koskela's opening, but lost four-tenths of a second on the final lap, and though Wennemars in the 14th and Davis in the 15th had better finishes than Koskela, they had lost too much time early on.

2.  Kristina Groves (CAN) 1:54.25
3.  Chiara Simionato (ITA) 1:54.65
In the absence of Anni Friesinger, winner of four World Cup races and WSD silver medallist last season, due to caution over poor health,[4] and with last season's World Cup winner Ireen Wüst in poor form, the Canadians dominated. Nesbitt, fourth in the World Cup last year with seven individual podiums on 1000 and 1500 m races under her belt, now set a personal best with 1.7 seconds[5] to take her first World Cup win. Nesbitt took the lead after 700 metres, and no one could match her last two laps either. Groves, who finished third in the World Cup lead last year, was upstaged by her younger compatriot, while Simionato, who finished 19th in the World Cup last season, took her first podium on the 1500 metres in the World Cup in three years.

2.  Sven Kramer (NED) 6:07.52
3.  Håvard Bøkko (NOR) 6:14.14
The fourth of four possible world records. Unlike in his last world record race, in Calgary in March, Sven Kramer did not have the knowledge of his foremost rivals' times, and had to set the pace himself. He set out with laps around 29 seconds, and was two seconds ahead of his Calgary world record at one point, but lost time with 29.5-laps towards the end. In the following pair, Enrico Fabris gave away two seconds in the opening kilometre, but skated a race around the world record time. With one lap to go, he was 0.03 seconds behind the world record and 0.47 seconds behind Kramer's time today; however, a finishing lap of 28.58 saw him take both the record and the race win. Norwegian Håvard Bøkko took his first individual podium in a World Cup race.

2.  Lee Kang-seok (KOR) 34.23
3.  Yu Fengtong (CHN) 34.49
Wotherspoon faced Lee Kang-seok in the final pair, and though both skated below the world record mark before the weekend, it was only the second and fourth fastest race of all time after the event had been completed. Lee Kyou-hyuk and Dmitry Lobkov, third and fourth in Friday's race, lost two-tenths on yesterday's times, allowing Yu Fengtong to take China's first podium place since December last year, when he took second on the 100 m.

2.  Anni Friesinger (GER) 1:13.71
3.  Christine Nesbitt (CAN) 1:13.92
With Wang Fei resting ahead of the 3000 m, the podium was considerably changed from Friday's race. Wang Beixing improved her time, but so did all the others starting in the last two pairs, and Wang could only take fourth place. She remained in the overall World Cup lead as Friesinger failed to beat Simionato, as the Italian took her tenth victory on the distance, though it was the first time she'd beaten Friesinger at a major international race over 1000m.

2.  Shani Davis (USA) 1:07.04
3.  Lee Kyou-hyuk (KOR) 1:07.07
Though Koskela withdrew due to fears over a thigh injury, which would later keep him out of the Calgary meet,[6] the race was still at a high class, with four races among the top six of all time.[7] In the 12th of 15 pairs, both Mun Jun and Jan Bos skated more than two-tenths below their personal bests, with Mun taking the pair due to a better opening lap. Two pairs later Lee Kyou-hyuk opened in 16.19, four-tenths faster than Mun, and kept his lead till the end. The decision came in the final pair, when Wotherspoon and Davis faced off; Wotherspoon gained a second over the first 600 metres, and though Davis produced the fastest last lap of the race and clocked a time 0.01 behind his PB, he had to leave Salt Lake City without a win despite three podium places. Wotherspoon, the race winner, took over the World Cup lead.

2.  Cindy Klassen (CAN) 3:59.37
3.  Renate Groenewold (NED) 3:59.79
Sáblíková, World Cup winner last season, took her fourth successive long-distance win in the World Cup, and had not been beaten on the longer distances in the World Cup since November 2006, but couldn't set the first women's world record of the season, finishing 4.5 seconds behind the world record and one second behind her own personal best. Klassen and Groenewold came in later pairs, but were unable to beat Sáblíková's times, though they took their first podium places of the World Cup season.

2.  Wang Beixing (CHN) 37.21
3.  Sayuri Yoshii (JPN) 37.88
The first women's world record of the season was set in Calgary, not Salt Lake City. This time, the draw had failed to give a Wolf–Wang meetup, and Wolf skated first in the ninth pair with last outer. Wang lost 0.23 seconds in the opening 100, and despite a better full lap, Wang could only take second. Avoiding start trouble, Gerritsen advanced to sixth place.

2.  Renate Groenewold (NED) 3:55.98
3.  Kristina Groves (CAN) 3:58.78
Sábliková extended her unbeaten record, but had to fight hard to beat Groenewold, who led from 1000 to 2600 metres. With two laps to go, Groenewold had a second's lead, and had a worst lap of 31.04; then Sáblíková rallied, and kept her lead in the last outer to win by a skate. Runner-up from last weekend, Cindy Klassen, struggled with her last laps of 33 and 35, losing six seconds to Sáblíková in the final lap to finish 11th, while a quick opening enabled Groves to beat Pechstein and take third in the overall World Cup standings behind Sáblíková and Groenewold.

Kuipers, Dutch champion on the distance this year and fourth at the 2006 Olympic Games, took his second World Cup victory on the distance after improving vastly on the ninth place from Salt Lake City after beating pairmate Tuitert through the last outer lane. He had the fifth fastest time after 1100 metres, but Lalenkov (in the eighth pair), Wennemars (in the ninth) and Davis (in the tenth) all lost considerable amounts to Kuipers' last lap of 27.06. Denny Morrison, second in Salt Lake, fell on home ice, while Sven Kramer had problems with his skates and finished last.[8]

2.  Anni Friesinger (GER) 1:53.09
3.  Kristina Groves (CAN) 1:53.18
Friesinger, who had skipped the first World Cup race of the season, now skated to second place from the first pair, while Nesbitt took her second victory in as many weeks, in a time identical to that in Salt Lake City. Groves was faster than Nesbitt over 700 metres, and lost less than in Salt Lake City, but due to Friesinger's presence it was not good enough for a podium

2.  Enrico Fabris (ITA) 6:06.42
3.  Carl Verheijen (NED) 6:11.15
The sixth world record of the season, and the fifth among the men. Kramer ensured Fabris' reign on the 5000 metres was only seven days long, as a race with laps below 29 until 3800 metres was enough to secure victory. Fabris skated in the last pair, knowing Kramer's time, but after a brief lead at 1000 metres he couldn't quite manage to keep up with the new world record, despite skating a second faster than in Salt Lake City. Verheijen, who finished second five times last season, at least advanced to third, while de Jong in fourth improved 10 seconds and six places from the Salt Lake City race.

2.  Christine Nesbitt (CAN) 1:14.14
3.  Chiara Simionato (ITA) 1:14.15
Friesinger skated in the last pair, and set a World Cup season best with more than six-tenths of a second to take over the World Cup lead and her first win of the season, while Wang Beixing, the victor in the first Salt Lake City race, was beaten comprehensively on both full laps. Simionato was beaten to the line by pairmate Nesbitt, who took her fourth career runner-up spot on the distance, where she is still due to win.

   Lee Kyou-hyuk (KOR) 1:07.40

Denny Morrison recovered from his poor race in Salt Lake City with his second career victory on the distance, in a race marred by timing controversies. Simon Kuipers faced Shani Davis in the ninth pair, and TV pictures indicated that Kuipers had beaten Davis, despite the electronic clocks showing Davis 0.02 seconds ahead. Kuipers was initially awarded the third place, but after long referee deliberations, he was put back to fifth as the electronic timing system were trusted.[9] According to Dutch skating referee Jacques de Koning, the rule used by the referees in Calgary to reinstate the timing results was incorrect.[10]

The German Olympic champions took revenge on the Canadian team that won gold at the 2007 single distance championship by setting the second fastest time of all time.[11] The Dutch team without skaters from the TVM team, such as Wüst, Groenewold and van Deutekom, included sprinters Margot Boer and Laurine van Riessen, and finished with a last lap of 37.88 seconds, beaten by eight seconds in that lap by pairmates Canada.

Two podium finishers in North America, Denny Morrison and Shani Davis, as well as world allround champion Kramer did not start here, but World Cup leader Wennemars hung on despite a weak last lap of 29.08, where he lost more than a second to Fabris and Bøkko. Bøkko, who was ranked eighth, took his first podium on the distance, where his best performance before the season had been 9th, and Fabris advanced from sixth to second in the overall standings.

3.  Daniela Anschütz-Thoms (GER) 1:57.10
Nesbitt was defeated for the first time this season, losing 0.8 seconds on the first lap, which she never recovered. Friesinger thus advanced from sixth to third in the World Cup standings. The podium was identical to the race in Moscow last year, with Anschütz-Thoms taking her first podium on this distance since then. Cindy Klassen was disqualified from what would have been a fifth place after impeding Friesinger in the changeover.

Bøkko skated the last five kilometres in 6:28, ten seconds faster than the first five. Prinsen took his best place in an official World Cup race, beating the time of Olympic gold medallist de Jong, while in the B group Loy skated 13:14 for a new French record and the second fastest time of the day.

A totally changed Dutch team, which only lacked an injured Verheijen from the 2007 gold-winning line-up, set an early best time that Canada, the winners from Calgary, simply could not match. Norway were level with Russia with half a lap to go in the fight for third, but finished fourth.
