    In Helsinki, forty ice-skaters from 17 countries are competing for the world speed championships. The winner will be the man who accumulates most points from four separate events; the 500 metres, the 5,000 metres, the 1500 metres and the 10,000 metres races.

    Here are some scenes from the 500 metres race in which Gontsharenko (Russia) the title-holder put up the fourth fastest time of 45 secs -- a time equalled by Britain's Terence Monaghan. Fastest time of the event was put up by Merkulov (Russia) with 44.2 seconds.
