Clearly Bowe’s goal this year was to reclaim her title at these championships.
After being crowned world champion for the first time in 2015, Brittany Bowe won the gold medal again in 2019.
However, faced with competition and less than ideal training conditions, she could not keep her world title in Salt Lake City last year, which was a real disappointment for her. So this year she gave it her all to win the title in the 1000m speed skating race and defeated 2020 World Champion Jutta Leerdam in a stunning one-on-one.
Brittany Bowe is once again World Champion in the 1000 meter speed skating. It’s always nice to see an LGBTQ female athlete stand out in her sport. And she’s not the only one. I’ll tell you in a few days about a lesbian snowboarder who also had enormous success in her discipline.
