Records

The combination of low altitude and high humidity at the Oval Lingotto in Turin created fairly slow ice conditions, relative to previous Olympic ovals, such as the Utah Olympic Oval. This meant that no world records in speed skating were set at the Games, and the only Olympic records set were in the two debut events, the men's and women's team pursuits.
