Results on men's 10,000-meter speedskating

RICHMOND, British Columbia ó Lee Seung-hoon of South Korea won a stunning gold medal in menís 10,000-meter speedskating when overwhelming favorite Sven Kramer failed to switch lanes just past the midway point of the race and was disqualified.
Kramer finished about 4 seconds ahead of Lee, but it didnít matter. The South Korean already was celebrating while the Dutch world-record holder was finishing his race, apparently unaware of what he had done.
