ResultsEdit

The Overall World Champion is determined by adding the points received by the athletes taking part in the final of each event; points are not awarded for any races other than the event finals.

In the 3000 m super-final, an additional 5 points are awarded to the athlete who is leading the race after the first 1000 m. The relay events do not count towards the overall classification.

The athlete with the second most points wins the overall silver medal, and the next highest point scorer wins overall bronze.
