Sven Kramer: I'll compete at next Winter Games

Friday - 2/28/2014, 7:10am  ET

AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Sochi Games dual gold medallist Sven Kramer says he plans to keep speedskating until the next Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Kramer, who won gold in the 5,000 meters and team pursuit in Sochi but was surprisingly beaten into second place by Jorrit Bergsma in the 10,000, wrote in his newspaper column, "I've already made the decision" to compete in Pyeongchang in 2018.

It would be Kramer's fourth Winter Games. In his career he has three gold medals, two silvers and two bronzes.

In his column published on Friday in De Telegraaf, he looks back on Sochi "with a feeling of satisfaction."

Kramer was part of a dominant Dutch speedskating team that piled up eight golds and 23 medals overall.
