Korea's Choi Minjeong upset hot favorite Suzanne Schulting (NED) to claim a Women’s 1000m victory in the final World Cup event of the season in Dordrecht. Choi, the Olympic 1500m Champion, went one better than her 1000m silver in Debrecen and left Schulting to settle for third.

"She (Choi) did a great job and she was in the right place at the right moment," Schulting said.
Poland's Natalia Maliszewska passed Sarault on the inside late in the race and crossed the line in third place, but she was penalized for the maneuver, allowing Olympic and World Champion Schulting to claim bronze.

"It was really tough racing," said Schulting, who conceded she was tired after skating nearly 40 races on consecutive weekends.
"It's not only just the legs but it's also mentally tough because you have to reload yourself every time."

The Dutch star bounced back from her individual disappointments, however, to claim double relay gold in the final races on Sunday.
