Sven Kramer from the Netherlands has taken the gold medal in the Men's 5000m speed skating competition. Kramer, who won the same event in the Sochi 2014 Winter Games, completed his run in PyeongChang with an Olympic Record Time of 6:09.76.

The Gangneung Oval rocked with excitement as Korean athlete Seung-Hoon Lee dominated the proceedings from an early start, but sadly for the home crowd it was not meant to be. Canadian Ted-Jan Bloemen undercut the Korean with a time of 6:11:616, a time that would ultimatley deliver him a silver medal. Norway's Sverre Lunde Pedersen took home the bronze (6:11.618).
