Other informationPERFECT SEASON
His victory in the 500m at the 2011 Junior World Cup in Groningen, Netherlands, meant he won every junior event entered over the distance in the 2010/11 season. He also won gold at three events over 1000m, including a world title, in the same season but a fourth place finish in the 1000m in Groningen meant he missed out on a perfect season over both distances.
