The Netherlands' Suzanne Schulting defended another title on the final day of the International Skating Union (ISU) European Short Track Speed Skating Championships today.

Racing over 1,000 metres, Schulting had enough in the tank to hold off compatriot Selma Poutsma for the gold medal, making it her third successful title defence following wins in the 500m and 1500m.

Germany's Anna Seidel won the bronze medal in a photo finish with Ekaterina Efremenkova, edging out the Russian by just 0.016sec in Gdańsk in Poland.

Her only unsuccessful title defence came in the women's 3,000m relay, where the Dutch were shocked by France in the final and had to settle for silver instead.

Italy won the bronze as Russia were penalised over a collision.

Schulting also had an unsatisfactory experience in the 3,000m superfinal as she was penalised and unabl to add to her medal tally.

In that race, Sofia Prosvirnova of Russia won the gold, ahead of Seidel and Efremenkova.

However, Schulting did win the overall women's title for the ISU European Short Track Speed Skating Championships, ahead of Seidel and Prosvirnova.

Semen Elistratov added another gold medal to his name today in the men's 1000m, with the Russian a clear winner in the final.

Behind him for silver and bronze were Hungary's John-Henry Krueger and The Netherlands' Itzhak de Laat.

Hungary's Shaolin Sandor Liu and brother Shaoang were both notable by their absence in the individual competition, failing to win a medal between them, despite winning three individual titles last year.

Adding to his 1500m win yesterday, Elistratov's second gold medal propelled him to the top of the overall men's standings, with Italy's Pietro Sighel and De Laat taking overall silver and bronze respectively.

Sighel won the men's 3,000m superfinal ahead of De Laat and Krueger, who were a clear top three.

In the final race of the day, The Netherlands captured the men's 3,000m relay title in a blanket finish with Italy and Russia, who won silver and bronze in that order.

Hungary were yet again denied a medal, finishing fourth.
