With the Olympic Oval at 4,528 feet (~1,380 m) altitude, records are a distinct possibility. With Sabilkova setting 3,000 m and 5,000 m records at the World Allround Championships.

Bowe owns one World Cup title in her career, in the 1,000 m in 2014-15. Scoring is 60-54-48-43-40 for the top five places, so the event titles are very much up for grabs. Look for results here.
