  • * unofficial world best
  • ** During the course of a 5000 m race on 17 November 2013 in Salt Lake City, Russian skater Denis Yuskov recorded a 3000 m split time at 3:36.40. Yuskov also recorded a 3000 m time of 3:34.37 during a training race held on 2 November 2013. However, neither of these times count as the world record. The former because it was a split time, and not an official 3000 m race, the latter because it was ridden in a so-called 'quartet-start' (four riders on the track at the same time as opposed to the usual two) which means the time is ineligible to be counted as a world record under Article 221(2)(i) of the rules of the International Skating Union.

For comparison, the fastest known 400 m lap was skated by Pavel Kulizhnikov on 20 November 2015 in Salt Lake City during his 500-meter world record race in 24.31 seconds with an average speed of 59.23 km/h (36.80 mph).

For comparison, the fastest known 400 m lap of 25.94 s was skated by Zhang Hong during a 500 m race in Salt Lake City on 20 November 2015 with an average speed of 55.51 km/h (34.49 mph).

  • * unofficial world best
  • *** The average speed for the team pursuit races was calculated using a distance of 3098,88 meters for the men's race and 2324,16 meters for the women's race.[4] The skaters only utilise the inner lane and the lap distance is accordingly less than the 400 meters of a regular lap skated with one inner curve and one outer curve.

Sea level world bests[edit]

Salt Lake City and Calgary, where currently all world records were set, are at relatively high altitude. Since speed skating is easier at high altitudes,[5] skating statisticians keep separate lists for skating at (or close to) sea level, where times in Salt Lake City and Calgary are excluded.
