Jonathan Kuck, Maria Lamb win
KEARNS, Utah -- Olympian Jonathan Kuck claimed the men's allround title and fellow Olympian Maria Lamb took the women's title on the final day of the U.S. Long Track Championships on Monday.
Kuck totaled 151.723 points. He won the 10,000 meters in 13 minutes, 15.27 seconds at the Utah Olympic Oval after finishing second in the 5,000 last Thursday. Emery Lehman, a 16-year-old who won the 5,000, finished second for the allround title at 153.206. Patrick Meek was third at 154.792.
Meek was second in the 10,000 in 13:26.06, while Lehman was third at 13:29.68.
Lamb won the women's allround title with 151.723 after claiming the 5,000 with a time of 7 minutes, 10.34 seconds. Petra Acker was second at 7:20.71. Olympian Jilleanne Rookard finished third in 7:20.71.
"I've won it twice before but both times some of the top girls didn't skate the 5,000," Lamb said. "This is the first time I've been allround champion when everyone skated the final distance, so it's the first time I actually feel like I won it. The 5k is my favorite distance and it was a good race for me."
Rookard, who won the 3,000 last Thursday, finished second in allround standings at 167.021. Acker was third at 168.451.
The allround champions were decided by combining the points each speedskater earned for their finishes at four distances.
