Fatum broke her own world record in winning her third consecutive IISA world title in the 500m in 6:10.87, a time that would have qualified her 8th overall in the men’s 500m race. 19-year-old Audrenn Foiny of France qualified second in 6:27.19 with 29-year-old Laura Nesbitt of Great Britain qualifying third in 6:48.38.
