A golden record for Laurent Dubreuil


Quebecer Laurent Dubreuil was quick to excel at the Long Track Speed ​​Skating World Cup in Calgary, winning gold in the 500-meter event on Friday.

Dubreuil set a time of 33.778 s, which constitutes a new Canadian mark. The one who had the Japanese Wataru Morishige by his side during his performance on the oval saw the Chinese Tingyu Gao (33.876) and Yuma Murakami (33.898), from the land of the Rising Sun, accompany him on the podium.

The winner is already guaranteed to participate in the Beijing Olympics over this distance. However, he will have to confirm his place in the men’s 1000m on Sunday. A presence in the top 8 of the cumulative classification will allow him to achieve this objective.
