The team of Valerie Maltese, Isabelle Weidmann and Evanie Blondin advanced to gold in the team pursuit Saturday at the ISU Speed ​​Skating World Cup in Salt Lake City, Utah.

It is the second gold in as many weeks for the trio after they finished first last weekend at the Four Continents Championships.

The trio skated with a time of 2:54.07 seconds, ahead of Japan in second place by 1.44 seconds, and the United States by 3.59 seconds.

It is Malta's second medal in as many days after taking bronze in the 3,000m on Friday.

Laurent Dubreuil continued his quest for the top spot in the 500m World Cup standings with a silver medal on Saturday.

Dubreuil finished his time close to the gold medal as he crossed the line in 34.05 seconds, just 0.09 seconds ahead of American Jordan Stolz. Yuma Murakami from Japan rounded the time. Stolz achieved a personal best with his gold medal.

Dubreuil was coming off his first 500m World Cup gold of the year in Quebec City, and a Four Continents Championships gold the week before. He has now won three silverware during the 2023-24 season and ranks second overall, 37 points behind Japan's Wataru Morishige. Morishige finished 10th on Saturday.
