Dutch speedskater Sven Kramer wins the gold medal in the men's 5,000 meters at the Olympic Oval.

The 23-year-old pre-race favorite won Saturday in a new Olympic record of 6 minutes, 14.60, shaving six hundredths of a second off Jochem Uytdehaage's record set at altitude in Salt Lake City in 2002.

Lee Seung-Hoon of South Korea was second in 6:16.95, and Ivan Skobrev of Russia was third in 6:18.05.
