The New Zealand speedskater Shane Dobbin has finished seventh in the Olympic 10,000 metre event as the Netherlands again swept the medals.
Dobbin went into the Olympics hoping for a top-eight finish.
His time was 32 seconds behind Jorrit Bergsma, who set an Olympic record in taking gold.
Bergsma finished ahead of team-mates Sven Kramer and Bob de Jong.
Bergsma took 14 seconds off the previous record time in upsetting pre-race favourite Kramer who was hoping to avenge his disqualification in Vancouver four years ago.
It was a fourth clean sweep of the speed skating medals for the Dutch and sixth win from nine events, taking them to a Sochi-leading overall total of 20 medals.
