Two very strong favorites stand out from the pack in this event. Martina Sablikova (Czech Republic) is the most recent gold medal-winner while Germany’s Claudia Pechstein carries three golds into this event and remains a threat despite missing out on 2010.

The Netherlands’ Ireen Wuest cannot be ignored, either. You may have heard that things are going well for the Dutch in these events.
