Dutch gold rush

For us Dutch, the first week of the Olympic Wintergames in Sochi has been dominated by the phenomenal successes of the speed skaters (to date, of the 18 medals awarded, 12 were for Dutch skaters, including four of the six golds). Even the New York Times paid attention, and selected this beautiful photograph of the golden race of Ireen Wust (3 km) for their front page. As always, all rights retained by the photographer (Pavel Golovkin/AP Photo).
