Wang Beixing, who is most likely to succeed Wang Manli and end China's gold medal drought at Olympic Winter Games, netted five golds at the 11th National Winter Games Monday.

She won four gold medals in the two races of each of the 500 meters and 1,000 meters of the short-distance all-round speed skating and her fifth gold was won on her final and accumulated points in the events.

The home crowd, excited and overjoyed, greeted the skating queen with a long and hearty applause as Wang skated slowly along the tracks after the competition.

"My results are not so good as expected though they are good enough. My main challenge comes from a German athlete," she told reporters.

"Skating on plateaus is easier than on plains. You receive less resistance on tracks with an altitude," the 23-year-old skater said.

Wang topped the list in the final result with 154.835 points, followed by Zhang Shuang from Yichun and Zhang Lu from Hegang.

Wang, born in 1985 and national record holder in the two events, trains in Canada and she came back for the Games held every four years.
