Olympics 2018: Final Corner

This was the women's mass start in speed skating, the first time this race has been an Olympic event.  It is based on a similar event in track cycling.  Riders gain points in three intermediate sprints during the race, and if a skater can lap the pack they will gain 20 points.  The final sprint earns the first across the line 60 points, so it still comes down to the finale.  Going into the final corner of the race in was Irene Schouten (Netherlands) on the front followed by Nan Takagi (Japan) with Bo-Reum Kim (Korea) on her wheel.  It was Takagi taking Gold, with Kim in for Silver, and Schouten for Bronze.

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available by emailing me at  Since it is an original it is first come first served.  It is $75 plus shipping.  The painting was created using Yarka St Petersburg watercolors from  And yes, international shipping is available.
