Our Australian Speed Skating Team returned from Italy in September after a successful World Championships.
With the help of a grant from Skate Australia to the National Speed Branch, the nine Australian athletes were able to train on the official World Championship track and have an elite preparation leading into the Championships.
A few personal bests were achieved early in the Championships with Ariel completing 29.309 in her time trial and John 26.776 in his time trial. Matthew recorded his best World’s time ever with 26.921 and Paul did his best time ever with 26.658.
We would like to congratulate Harry in achieving 8th in the Junior Mens race and crossing the line in 3rd place in another race.
All athletes skated to their absolute best and we are proud of your achievements.
