• Success for Claudia Pechstein

    Second day – second medal for the German team at the single track world championships in the Netherlands. Claudia Pechstein wins the women’s 5,000m in an excellent time of 6: 56.53, behind Martina Sablikova (CZE) and Carlijn Achtereekte (NED). In front of a full house in Thialf, the Berliner ran a steady race and was rewarded with a well deserved podium. However, especially Martina Sablikova impressively demonstrated that they are currently running in a different league on this distance.
