Other information that could be of interest to the media
I understand why speed skating is the top Canadian Olympic sport
because of the great experience I have as a skater and team member in the smallest Canadian province where most ice time is allotted to hockey. Our sport is virtually without either violence or barriers to male and female co-ed team members.
