Out bisexual Ireen Wüst added to her medal count today (22 February) at the Winter Olympics.

The speedskater took gold as a member of the Netherlands women’s team pursuit squad.

She, Jorien ter Mors, and Marrit Leenstra won with an Olympic record time of, as reported by the Associated Press, 2:58.05.

The victory, aside from adding to the Netherlands’ domination in speedskating during the Games, also made Wüst the first athlete  to win five medals at Sochi — two golds and three silvers.

‘It has yet to sink in,’ the Olympic champion said, as reported by ABC News. ‘I still don’t realize what an exceptional performance I have achieved here.’
