The Netherlands pulled off an impressive gold-silver-bronze sweep at the men's 500m speedskating event, but not without controversy.

As the racers finished, it appeared that Jan Smeekens had won gold.

Smeekens, running in the first heat, initially believed he had won gold. But once the clock adjusted to the offiicial time, Michel Mulder had won the gold with a time of 1 minute, 9.31 seconds, and Smeekens stood at 1 minute, 9.32 seconds.
