The second day of racing in Tomaszów Mazowiecki included track records in the ladies’ 500m and men’s 1500m and exciting ladies’ team pursuit and men’s mass start races. 

Kodaira takes back 500m glory
After finishing third last week in Minsk, Japanese Nao Kodaira ended on the highest step of the 500m podium today in Poland. Her time of 37.775 which is now the new track record in Tomaszów Mazowiecki allowed her to beat Russian skaters Olga Fatkulina and Daria Kachanova. 

Krol, Nuis and Yuskov once again at the top on 1500m 
The men’s 1500m podium was once again composed of Thomas Krol, Kjeld Nuis and Denis Yuskov, but in a different order than last week in Minsk. This time, Thomas Krol was the winner as he skated a new track record of 1:45.76. Last weekend’s winner Kjeld Nuis finished second and Denis Yuskov third. Twenty-year-old Canadian Tyson Langelaar who was in the B group last week finished fifth of the A group this week. 

Russia beats the Netherlands in the team pursuit
For a second day in a row, Russia was faster than the Netherlands in a ladies’ team event. The Russian trio managed to win the team pursuit in front of their Dutch rivals by 0.12 seconds. Canada finished third while team Japan, the Olympic champions on the distance, crashed and finished last. 

Mantia edges out the competition in the mass start
After some breakaways by different skaters, American Joey Mantia won the pack sprint of the men’s mass start. The reigning World champion on the distance was followed by Dutch veterans Jorrit Bergsma and Arjan Stroetinga who completed the podium.
