Ihle and Beckert will lead the German squad
Nico Ihle and Patrick Beckert were the most dominant skaters of the german trials in Inzell. Ihle was victorious in the 500m and finished second in the 1000m. Beckert was the fastest in the 5000m, 1500m and 10 000m. Roxanne Dufter was the best female athlete of the championships with a victory in the 1500m, a second place on 3000m and a third place in the 1000m.

Bokko, Lorentzen and Pederson still on top for Norway
Hege Bokko was dominant in the norwegian trials winning both 500m races, the 1000m and finishing second in the 1500m. In the men’s competition Håvard Holmefjord Lorentzen also won both 500m races and the 1000m. Sverre Lunde Pedersen was the best long distance skater for the men and won the 1500m, 5000m, and 10 000m.

Even playing field in Belarus

Tatyana Mikhailova and Marina Zueva were the most consistent ladies with respectively four and three podiums. Ignat Golovatyuk was the top skater in the men’s competition winning the 500m, 1000m and 1500m distances.
