Peter Kongshaug and Bart Swings win European Championship gold on the final day in Heerenveen


Norway’s Peter Kongshaug and Belgium’s Bart Swings broke up Dutch dominance by claiming European titles on the final day of racing in Heerenveen.

Kongshaug edged out home favourites Kjeld Nuis and Patrick Roest to become the first non-Dutch winner of the men’s 1500m since 2018.

And Swings, Olympic gold medallist in the mass start, regained his European title with a consummate display in the last race of the Championships.

There was still plenty of Dutch success for the home crowd to savour.

Jenning de Boo was crowned the fastest speed skater in Europe with 500m victory and Jutta Leerdam upgraded 500m silver to 1000m gold.

Marijke Groenewoud won the women’s mass start to crown a typically powerful team performance from the host nation. They won ten of 14 available gold medals, including a sweep of the seven women’s events.
