Roller & inline speed skating is very deep and competitive throughout the world. Canada’s team has been stacked up against incredibly competitive and experienced skaters in every race and in every division.
Some of our skaters are a little discouraged because of the low placements but if you look at two things it makes it seem a little better. For one if you look at our times from our last banked track event, Worlds in Gijon Spain, they are almost all faster now, so we are improving. Two there are 16 less countries here than in Spain and all the strong counties are here which means there are 16 countries that we are usually in contention with or beating that are not here. All in all I am very happy with the performance so far.
