In a time of 35.08, Greig raced to 15th in the Heerenveen World Cup collecting 14 ranking points in the 500m A Division, which was won by Russian Ruslan Murashov in 34.50.
Greig welcomed his return to form after recovering from bi-lateral knee injuries last season. Now ranked 26th in the world for the 500m after this morning’s race, he said that his race execution could have been better.
“In terms of execution, it was actually, not a great race,” Greig said this morning. “I made some mistakes that cost me time.”
“The silver lining is that it seems my world top level has returned. I’ve put down two competitive 500m races in a row now.”
“What I feel like I need now is for my muscle memory to get used to the speed so I can take another step up the ranking.”
In his 1000m B Divsion race on Monday morning AEDT, Greig completed his weekend campaign with a "solid run" according to the Aussie, placing 7th with a time of 1:10:31 and collecting 4 points in the world rankings, placing him 38th overall.
