Irene Schouten won a third speed skating gold medal in Beijing with a brilliant sprint finish in the women's mass start.
Schouten lived up to her title as 'Queen of the Ice' by adding the mass start gold to the 3000m and 5000m titles she already won for the Netherlands at the Games.
She ousted Ivanie Blondin into the silver medal position inside the last 20, the Canadian finishing just six hundredths of a second behind Schouten.
