On Sunday at the ISU Speed Skating World Cup in Tomaszow Mazowiecki, Poland, Ivanie Blondin won the mass start silver medal while Laurent Dubreuil collected a 500-metre bronze.

It came down to the final lap of the ladies’ mass start, as Ivanie Blondin was neck and neck with Irene Schouten from the Netherlands. Blondin’s time of 9:03.410s put her behind Schouten (9:03.260s) for the silver medal. Last weekend, Blondin defeated Schouten for gold. The bronze medal went to Japan’s Nana Takagi (9:03.430s).

Canada’s Laurent Dubreuil crossed the finish line in 34.975 seconds. Japan’s Tatsuya Shinhama (34.732) and Yuma Murakami (34.734) claimed the top two spots on the podium.
