Regina’s Kali Christ and Marsha Hudey, as well as Moose Jaw’s Graeme Fish are among the speed skaters who will be competing at the Canadian Long Track Championships Oct. 13-17 in Calgary.
Christ, a two-time Olympian, will be competing in the women’s 1,000-, 1,500- and 5,000-metre races and the Mass Start event. Hudey, who has also competed at two Olympic Games, will compete in the 500- and 1,000-m races.
Meanwhile, Fish will take part in the men’s 5,000- and 10,000-m races and the Mass Start event. Fish currently holds the world record in the 10,000-m event with a time of 12:33.86.
The results from this event will help finalize the members of the National Team and the NextGen Team for the 2021-22 season, serve as a selection event for those who will represent Canada on the World Cup circuit this fall and is an important step for those competing for a spot at the 2022 Beijing Winter Games.
A live stream of the event will be available on the Speed Skating Canada YouTube channel.
