Ireen Wüst of the Netherlands has won her third medal at the Sochi Winter Games.

The out bisexual took silver in the women’s 1,500 meters, held in Adler Arena.

Her time, as reported by AFP, was 0.58 seconds off the winning time. Taking gold was fellow Dutch athlete Jorien ter Mors, with a time of 1 minute and 53.51 seconds.

Lotte van Beek, also from the Netherlands, won bronze at 1 minute and 54.54 seconds.

Today’s medal gives Wüst three prizes from Sochi. She won the gold in the 3,000 meters and silver in the 1,000 meters.

‘I tried to be satisfied because Jorien was just the best today,’  Wüst said, according to AFP. ‘My race was 90 percent and I needed 100 percent to win the gold.’

Wüst has now won six Olympic Winter Games medals, matching the Dutch record held by Rintje Ritsma.
