Vancouver (AFP) - Martina Sablikova of the Czech Republic won the 3,000-meter women's speedskating gold on Sunday at the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, four years after just missing a medal in the event.
Three-time reigning World Cup long distance champion Sablikova won in 4mins 2.53 secs while Germany's Stephanie Beckert took the silver, 2.09 seconds back with Canada's Kristina Groves capturing the bronze in 4:04.84.
"This is wonderful. I don't know what to say. I was so nervous," said Sablikova.
