The bronze medal winner of the 1,000-meter event, Brittany Bowe, commented on Takagi’s speed, saying, “Takagi is skating out of her mind, and I was gunning for that time, but it didn’t happen,” reported ESPN.
Bowe’s bronze medal is the 33-year-old’s first individual medal in her Olympic career. Bowe finished the race with a time of 1:14.61.
The silver medal went to Jutta Leerdam of the Netherlands, who finished with a time of 1:13.83.
Takagi’s win came two days after losing gold in the team pursuit race as a result of her sister Nana falling during the last turn in the race. She was also beaten in the 1,500-meter speed skating competition by Ireen Wust of the Netherlands, reported Japan Times.
Her three previous silver medals won this year were earned during the 1,500-meter, 500-meter and team pursuit speed skating events.
