Here are a few neat videos from recent competitions with Canadian skaters;
The 2011 Canadian Outdoor Speed Championships are set to take place this weekend in Harriston, Ontario at the CITC’s 200-meter track.
The official practice is set for Friday July 1st from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The RSC Speed Committee Meeting will take place at 5:15 p.m. inside the CITC’s Pavilion. RSC affiliated Clubs are allowed to send on representative to the meeting. Those who may also attended the meeting include RSC’s President (Wayne Burrett), RSC’s Vice-President of Speed (Tyler Congdon), and RSC’s Athlete’s Representative (Sarah Hopkins).
FIRS and the CIC have confirmed that skaters Angie Perez (Colombia), Nicolas Bermudez (Colombia), and Paola Serrano have tested positive at the anti doping tests carried out in 2010 at the World Roller Speed Skating Championships.
Those athletes, who have been disqualified by the Colombian Federation, have lost their World Championship titles. The CIC will award medals according to new rankings that exclude the skaters who tested positive.
This past weekend proved fruitful for Canadian skaters competing in the USA.
Candy Wong & Nadine Currie Jackson placed 1st and 2nd in the Open Women’s category at the Apostle Islands Inline Marathon in Wisconsin. Morgan Williams placed 7th overall.
Morgane Echardour scored a triple victory at this season’s second Eastern Seaboard Series. She won the Pro Women’s 15km race and 1km time-trial and was the top female finisher in the 5km race.
