American Brittany Bowe and Japan's Ayano Sato and Miho Takagi who are currently in the top 3 on the World Cup circuit were the biggest names to watch. Reigning Olympic champion and undisputed queen of long track speed skating Ireen Wüst was also competing. In the end, it was Wüst who won the distance with a time of 1:53.280, defending her title won in Pyeongchang in 2018.
