Congratulations to Chloe and Emma Grace who will be representing Ontario at the Canadian Age Class Long Track Championships in St Foy Quebec next weekend. Aidan VanBeek will also be competing. Good luck skaters, we’ll be cheering for you.
Long track is a great way to complement short track speed skating. It is raced on a 400m track, and helps to build endurance and strength. Racing can be either Mass Start (multiple skaters) or Olympic Style (2 skaters on the track).
Congratulations to the SLSSC skaters who braved the weather this past weekend to participate in the Provincial Long Track Championships, in Ottawa. Personal Bests were set by all who skated, with several of our members reaching the podium for their specific age classes. Congrats to Aidan VanBeek for finishing 1st overall in the 12 years old boys category. Congrats to Chloe Segal for finishing 2nd in the 14 years old category girls. Congrats to Emma Grace Wheeler for finishing 3rd in the 13 year old girls category. Congrats to Connor Taugher for finishing 3rd in the Open Men (16-49) category. All 4 skaters will be representing Team Ontario at the Canadian Championship on Feb 7-8 in Saskatoon. Good Luck!
