Osemi Visser won the first gold medal in the Netherlands at the Obehirou World Cup on Sunday. The 22-year-old skater of TalentNED won 3,000 meters in the record: 4.04.60.
Russia and Natalia Veronina finished second in 4.05.02 and Czech Republic Martina Sáblíková took bronze with 4.05.23.

Last season, she was only active in Group B in November. After that Visser has experienced a surprising international breakthrough, but in the World Cup she does not appear on the ice.
"It's a good start," Visser agreed NOS. "I did not like my race very well, especially since I did not go through three times at first. It was a little messy and messy, even in terms of my lap times that changed a lot, I did not really see that victory."
"I do not see myself as best I can, I still have to prove myself, because I was quite tense in advance, you might be an Olympic champion, but that was really my first trophy in the World Cup in the group.
Ends at the end of the sixth
Ireen Wüst had to make do with the sixth time of 4.06.13. Dutch champion Antoinette de Gong traveled for the seventh time (4.06.57). Melissa Bitch (tenth in 4.07.15) and Reina Anema (13 in 4.10.28) do not approach the stall.
