Christine Nesbitt claimed Canada's first speed skating title and third overall gold medal of the Vancouver Games by winning the women's 1,000 meters with a time of 1 minute, 16.56 seconds.
Nesbitt edged silver medalist Annette Gerritsen by just two-hundredths of a second, closing the half-second gap between the two skaters at the 600-meter mark.
The bronze medal also went to the Dutch, as Laurine van Riessen finished in 1 minute, 16.72 seconds, edging Canadian Kristina Groves by just six-hundredths.
Jennifer Rodriguez, who won two medals in Salt Lake City eight years ago, was the top American finisher. She finished seventh, while Heather Richardson finished two spots back.
