Over the past competition days in Sochi four Olympic records were established.
Note that the records at the Olympic Games are registered only in skating and short track speed skating. The matter is that the rest of the competitions in winter sports are carried out on different paths and to fix the record under such conditions is impossible.
The first record of the Games in Sochi was established by Sven Kramer, a Dutch skater. He showed an incredible result at a distance of 5,000 meters — 6 minutes 10.76 seconds. This figure is four seconds better than the previous Cramer’s record which he demonstrated at the Games in Vancouver.
South Korean skater Lee Sang-hwa broke the record in the final race at 500 meters with 37.28 seconds. Her previous result — 37.30 seconds — has been held since 2002 and belonged to Catriona Le May Doan from Canada.
Another record — at a distance of 1,500 meters — was established by the representative of the Netherlands Jorien ter Mors (1:53.51).
The only short track record currently broken in Sochi belongs to Valerie Malta from Canada — she overcame the distance of 1,000 m in 1 minute 28.771 seconds.
