The Netherlands participated at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The Dutch team consisted of 34 competitors and participated in bobsleigh, short track speed skating, snowboarding, and speed skating.

The Dutch team won eight medals, of which four are gold medals. Seven medals were won in speed skating, one in snowboarding. The gold medal Nicolien Sauerbreij won on the women's parallel giant slalom was the first Dutch medal outside speed skating at the Winter Olympics since Sjoukje Dijkstra's medal for figure skating in 1964 and the 100th Dutch gold medal at the Olympics overall.

Records[edit]

Olympic record[edit]

Sven Kramer set a new Olympic record of 6:14.60 in the 5000m men's longtrack speedskating event.[1] He also finished in an Olympic record time in the 10,000 m, but he was disqualified for finishing in the wrong lane.

Jan Blokhuijsen, Sven Kramer, Simon Kuipers and Mark Tuitert set a new Olympic record of 3:39.95 in the men's team pursuit longtrack speedskating event. It brought them no more than the bronze medal, since they had lost their semifinal before.

Track records[edit]

Mark Tuitert set a new track record of 1:45.57 in the men's 1500m longtrack speedskating event. Ireen Wüst equalled the track record of 1:56.89 in the women's 1500 m race. The above mentioned 5,000 m and men's team pursuit Olympic records were also track records.
