Speed skating sweep


Lee Sang-hwa celebrates on the podium after winning the overall title in the women’s 500-meter event at the Essent ISU World Cup Speed Skating in Heerenveen, Holland, on Sunday. It is the first time a Korean female has ever won the overall top spot at a World Cup. Lee amassed 1,055 points from a total of nine World Cups in the 2012-13 season. That completes her sweep of major international titles, including the Olympics and the world championships. Lee, 24, won the 500-meter event at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the 2012 World Championships. [REUTERS/NEWSIS]
