QUEBEC — Canadian long-track speedskater Ted-Jan Bloemen won gold and teammate Valerie Maltais took bronze at the ISU World Cup Speed Skating competition Friday. 

Bloemen, from Calgary, finished in six minutes 13.87 seconds to trim about three seconds from his own track record in the men’s 5,000 metres at the Centre de glaces Intact Assurance.

“Winning bronze last weekend and gold this weekend is a good confirmation that my season plan is working,” Bloemen said. “It gives a lot of confidence for world championships in two weeks and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Italy’s Davide Ghiotto took silver and Hallgeir Engebråten of Norway picked up bronze.
