Speed Skating

There is no question that speed is the name of the game in Speed Skating. These athletes train a great deal in order to make their movements mechanically sound, because every unnecessary movement could be a potential second lost, leaving the athlete that much farther from the finish line. Speed Skating has been a staple sport in the Arctic Winter Games since 1984 when it made its first appearance at the Games in Yellowknife, NWT.
