Good form continues for Greig at World Sprint titles

6 March 2018

SPEED SKATING: The two personal best results for speed skater Daniel Greig at PyeongChang 2018 heralded a new beginning for the talented Victorian who relocated permanently to the Netherlands to pursue his sport.

From Korea, Greig went directly to Chanchung, China for the 49th ISU World Sprint Speed Skating Championships 2018 last weekend, attracting sixty athletes from fifteen countries and regions for a two-day event racing in the 500 metres and 1,000 metres each day.

On Saturday during race day one, Greig clocked an impressive 35.34 seconds in the 500m, placing 15th and 1.11.07 in the 1,000m for 18th position.

Day two saw a similar time for the 26-year-old in the 500m, clocking 35.46 seconds for 17th place and an improved 1,000m in 1.10.91 for 16th.

Greig finished overall in 16th place after his four events over two days of sprint racing.

Jorien ter Mors (NED) won the women’s whilst Håvard Holmefjord Lorentzen (NOR) won the men’s overall World Sprint crowns.

The next long track speed skating event is the World Allround Speed Skating Championships in Amsterdam on March 9 and 10.
