Bart Swings is still very dominant in speed skating and he has proven so in the 2017 World Games in Poland. He won a silver medal in the 1000 m, a gold medal on the 20 K elimination race and a second gold medal on the 10 K point race on the road. Speed skating is pure racing! Few other sports can match the excitement of the head-to-head battles for positions between skaters hurtling themselves through the curves or the photo-finish drama that unfolds once they cross the finish line. To win, the skaters need not only sprinting abilities and stamina, they also have to quickly asses the situation and use all possible tactics to beat their opponents down the home stretch.
