HEERENVEEN, Netherlands -- Canadas Christine Nesbitt won her second straight gold medal at the speedskating single distance world championships Saturday with a dominant performance in the 1,000 metres. .

Jing Yu of China was nearly a second behind in 1:15.98 and Margot Boer of the Netherlands was third in 1:16.16. Nesbitt, from London, Ont., started on the outside lane beside the Dutch skater. She said she panicked when Boer got off to a great start. "I built my second corner really well anyway to try and chase her down," Nesbitt said. "I had a really good first lap off of that. The second lap I think I was sitting on my heel. I think I had a couple of slips. "My coach said I had a pretty good race considering I almost fell. I dont think it was that dramatic." Coach Xiuli Wang said Nesbitt almost went down with 250 metres to go. "She had lots of speed," Wang said. "She wasnt holding well, but she got back and finished the race strong. Even if it wasnt a perfect race, shes in the elite and on a higher level." Nesbitt clinched the womens Grand World Cup earlier this month.
