Nao Kodaira claimed the women’s 1,000 meters silver medal at the ISU’s World Single Distances Speed Skating Championships on Saturday, adding to her first world gold medal in the 500 a night earlier.

The 30-year-old clocked 1 minute, 14.43 seconds but fell short of winner American Heather Bergsma (1:13.94). The Netherlands’ Jorien ter Mors placed third (1:14.66) on the rink that will host the speed skating at the Winter Olympics next February.
