On day 2, the mass start and the 1000m were on the program. 

Bowe takes the 1000m title 

Brittany Bowe won the women's 1,000m with a time of 1:14.128. It was the American's third career world title on 1000m. The young Dutch skater Jutta Leerdam, 2021 European champion and 2020 1000m World Champion had to settle for silver. Russia's Elizaveta Golubeva took third place by achieving her personal best of 1:14.848 on the distance.

Penalty for Krol, opened door for Verbij

Thomas Krol, one of the favourites to win the distance, was disqualified after two false starts. His Dutch teammate Kai Verbij won the title with a time of 1:08.052. Pavel Kulizhnikov got silver and Laurent Dubreuil got bronze.

First title in career for Groenewoud

While many were expecting to see Olympic medallist and two-time world champion Irene Schouten of the Netherlands win, it was her young teammate Marijke Groenewoud who won her first career world title with a strong last lap. Rounding out the podium were Canada's Ivanie Blondin and Irene Schouten.

Title #3 for Mantia

American Joey Mantia won his third career World mass start title with a powerful final lap. Dutch veteran Arjan Stroetinga and Belgium's Bart Swings took second and third place respectively. 

The World championships will conclude tomorrow with the 1500m, the ladies’ 5000m and the men’s 10 000m.
