Netherlands and Norway bagged three medals each across seven events on Day 11 of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
Netherlands reigned supreme in the Men's 10,000m Speed Skating competition by bagging all the three medals.
Tournament favourite Sven Kramer, who won the Men's 5000m Speed Skating competition in 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, was stunned by compatriot Jorrit Bergsma who clocked an Olympic record timing of 12:44.45.
Bergsma, however, missed out on Kramer's world record timing by less than three seconds.
