Ireen Wust claimed the gold medal at her third straight Winter Olympics, but she had to beat defending champion Martina Sablikova in the 3,000 meters. Yahoo! Sports reports ”Seventeen million Dutch wanted me to win,” said Wust, who painted her nails in the colors of the Dutch flag. ”Now the extreme pressure is off, and I can win more.”

Jilleanne Rookard of Woodhaven, Mich., who skated in the pairing with Graf, was the highest-finishing American. She took 10th out of 28 skaters in 4:10.02. Anna Ringsred of Duluth, Minn., was 27th.

I could see in Anna’s face she was not happy with her finish. Anna, you made it to the Olympics, I didn’t, you have accomplished something when you came out of retirement.
