Sochi: Ireen Wust gave the Netherlands its second straight gold medal at the Olympic speedskating oval by winning the women's 3,000 meters Sunday.

   
Skating in the next-to-last pairing, Wust turned in a time of 4 minutes, 0.34 seconds to knock off defending Olympic champion Martina Sablikova of the Czech Republic.
   
Sablikova settled for the silver in 4:01.95, clapping for her rival after Wust crossed the line.
   
The bronze went to Olga Graf, who gave Russia its first medal of the Winter Games in 4:03.47, sending the crowd at Adler Arena into a frenzy.
   
Six-time Olympian Claudia Pechstein was looking to win her 10th Olympic medal, but the 41-year-old German faded badly over the final laps and didn't even make the podium. She was fourth in 4:05.26.
