Dutch dominance at the International Skating Union (ISU) Speed Skating World Cup continued as Thomas Krol bagged gold on day two in Minsk.

China's Ning Zhongyan split the Dutch to grab silver in 1:09.220, with Kjeld Nuis in bronze in 1:09.275.

More golden joy for The Netherlands came when Jorrit Bergsma won the mass start.

Chung crossed in 7:50.880 for second place as he pipped team mate Um Cheonho to the line.
