Trio Earn Racing Medals In Mexico

Toronto’s Sarah Hopkins and Greenfield Park’s Martine Charbonneau and a number of skaters from Toronto and Ottawa traveled to race in Mexico’s  Copa Mexicanidad Chiapaneca.

Sarah Hopkins, who skates with the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club & TISC, finished 2nd in the 300-meter sprint and 2nd in the 5km points race.

Martine Charbonneau, who lived in Quebec City this year competing in long track ice speed skating, took a few medals in the longer distance races- namely the gold in the 5km points race.

Ottawa’s JF Messier took home the silver medal in the 300-meter time trial with a time slightly over 27-seconds.
