SOUNDBITE(CHINESE): HAN MEI, Athlete
"I'm satisfied. I lost focus in the final two laps in the 5,000m race and only got a silver, but I'm happy for the winner. It's good to have a young talent to challenge me in long distance races so that I can be more motivated and we can improve together."
 
In the men's 1,500m race, Alemasi Kahanbai won the title in 1:50.02, after a runner-up finish in the 10,000m event.
 
Wu Yu ranked second by 0.305 seconds and Liu Yiming came in third.
 
The National Championships marks the last tournament for Chinese speed skaters in the 2018/19 season and the athletes will have a chance to rest up before training starts in April for the new season.
