Irene Wust obviously didn't like losing her spot as the Olympic champion, so she decided to take it back.

The Dutch legend captured her second gold medal in the 3,000 metres on Sunday to go with the gold she won in 2006 in Turin. She finished 7th in the event in Vancouver in 2010.

Wust clocked a winning time of 4:00:34. Czech superstar Martina Sablikova took the silver with a time of 4:01:95, while Russian Olga Graf surprised the rest of the field by coming in at 4:03:47 to take bronze. 

Brittany Schussler was the top Canadian as she finished 19th with a time of 4:14.65.
