General information

5000 metres for men is the first leg of the long track speed skating, which will be held at the 2010 Olympic Games, the first skater will start at 12:00 local time, 21:00 Dutch time. The competition is being held at the Richmond Olympic Oval, located about 15 km away is located in Vancouver. Earlier It held WORLD CUP distance 2009, it was further fueled by the known drivers rarely earlier on this track.
Four years ago, the American Chad Hedrick won the gold medal in Turin, Sven Kramer and Enrico Fabris. In recent years the distance was dominated by Sven Kramer, world record holder for females. The Olympic record of Jochem Uytdehaage, winner of the 5000 metres at the Olypische games in Salt Lake City in 2002 in a time of 6.14.66.
Favorites

Sven Kramer
Without a doubt, Sven Kramer is the big favorite for this five-kilometers. During the 2008-2009 season, Kramer won 5000 metres and maximum distance of at NK distances EK Allround World Allround Championships, World Championships and World Cup distance. He also won the overall classification on SM, EM and All-round WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS and he won many other distance. Earlier in the season 2009-2010 he won convincing EM all round.
Kramer left a week before you see the Olympics to be in good shape by the fastest in 3:40:51 in an exhibition match at 3000 metres at the Richmond Olympic Oval. He was two seconds faster than this competitor Fabris and left also include Bob de Jong, Ivan Skobrev and Trevor Masicano behind.
Clearly, Sven Kramer was the man to beat in the Olympic five kilometers.
Håvard Bøkko
To the extent but Kramer still favourites for gold can be read Håvard Bøkko belongs there. Bøkko is contemporary with Kramer and has long been one of the few that still single then to remain in his tracks. But the only major victory Bøkko VM on the combined standings of 5 and 10 kilometres in 2008, when Kramer a few games left to shoot.
Bøkko was almost all big tournaments in recent years, other, lagging behind Kramer. Earlier this season, Bøkko saw his chances of a good European Allround fading when he was at the opening 500 meters each.

Bob de Jong
Another outsider Dutchman Bob de Jong, who has over 10 years almost always finished on the podium at five and 10 kilometers at the World Single Distance CHAMPIONSHIPS. In 2006 De Jong also won a gold medal in the 10 km, 5 km he was 6th. while De Jong is particularly strong on the longest distance he has also performed well in their career several times in global tournaments in the 5000 metres. He won gold at the 2001 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in the distance and he felt them to achieve silver in 2003 and 2005.
De Jong was on a training game one week before the 5th game in the three kilometers, a distance which not are normally held by men. This seemed to De Jong not very satisfied, which indicated that, in particular, was technically better.
Enrico Fabris
Italian Enrico Fabris won the bronze medal four years earlier at the 5th kilometre. In his home country since he won gold in the 1500 m and team pursuit. Fabris is an experienced all-rounder and can both at 1500, 5000 and 10000 metres from your feet. In 2006 he won gold in the European Championship, but since then he never knew to come in on the top step at an international tournament. Often he had to Bøkko and/or Kramer in front of him.
Fabris gave the training ride about three kilometers two other monitor Kramer and thereby once again proved to be among one of the most important scene candidates.

The Outsiders

Chad Hedrick
Even Hedrick as defending champion stands in the beginning, it is not reasonable to count him among the Favorites. Hedrick knew since the season 2005-2006 not to get a few more times in a global tournament scene. He was 14th in the combined standings of the five and 10 kilometers in 2009 and this year he did not agree at this distance at the World Single Distance CHAMPIONSHIPS. However, the American showed his form good timing, so that he could create a surprise.
Shani Davis
His plan starts all the individual sections, but Shani Davis later decided to release 10 kilometers. At the 5000 metres he is probably at the beginning, but it is not secure. Davis focused earlier Allround, but recent years have seen more and more in the short distance and sprint Championship. Much chance of the 5 kilometers he cannot therefore be attributed, but he is certainly among the outsiders.
Jan Blokhuijsen
Jan Blokhuijsen debut degree at this distance at the Olympic Games. The VPZ driver stood in second place in the Olympic qualifying tournament for five kilometres and managed to take this out of the games Carl Verheijen. 20-year-old drove Blokhuijsen not many international competitions, but is already known for years as one of the biggest talents on the longest distances.
Alexis Contin
A relatively unknown skier for the general public, the Frenchman Alexis Contin. Contin drove past the DSB team and delivered in early 2008 his contract because he could no longer concentrate to develop well. But he was there one year later returned and took part in the European Championship at Thialf Alrround, when he was 15. Contin rider also in Marathon skating and was at the beginning of this season’s revelation European Allround in Hamar, where he placed 4th stage but missed. This he also won the silver medal in the 10 km.
Ivan Skobrev
The always smiling Russian Ivan Skobrev has proved over the last few years as a specialist in the long run. He has since 2007 and 5th, 9th, and 6: ai 5000 metres at the World Cup distance and rides his experience with the best of EM and the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS all-around. Thus he became this season 3 on the EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS Allround, behind Kramer and Fabris. The previous DSB rider with a time of 6.10,58 is a strong personal record, which was held in Salt Lake City.

Other outsdiders

Skin rash

The top favorite Sven Kramer knew the expectations come true, he picked up at 06.14.60 in a new Olympic record Olympic title. The big surprise in the 5 kilometres of Seung-Hoon Lee, the South Korean who just a few months ago moved from the rack to short track Speedskating. He was 2nd at 2:35 seconds Kramer.The podium was taken by the Russian Ivan Skobrev, a very disillusioned Håvard Bøkko Bronze managed to keep out. Bob de Jong was 5th, January 9 Blokhuijsen.
