Many would like to have such a tough life of skating focus. But after early promise and years of challenges, a former bulemic ice figure skater who qualified for trials in 1984 believes she may have it all coming together after just two years on ice speed skates.</p><p>She may find the 15 seconds of speed to get her 15 minutes of fame to make it into the 2014 Winter Olympics. Even if she doesn't, the pursuit of that dream will keep her life skateyfied and that has to be supersweet, indeed.</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/can-50-year-old-woman-qualify-2014-winter-olympics-long-track-ice-speedskating" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/can-50-year-old-woman-qualify-2014-winter-olympics-long-track-ice-speedskating#comments Roadskater.net 2012 2014 2000s United States of America (USA) 2010s bulemia Earth indoor Jackie Munzel Long Beach NY Long Island NY long track ice New York (NY) olympics outdoor winter olympics North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1414 Thu, 19 Apr 2012 11:00:00 +0000 roadskater 1414 at http://roadskater.net Glasgow Scotland UK 2014 Games Bring Inline Skating and Cycling Velodrome http://roadskater.net/glasgow-scotland-uk-2014-games-bring-inline-skating-and-cycling-velodrome <p>As part of the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Glasgow, Scotland, UK will be getting an indoor cycling velodrome which will also house an &quot;inline skating facility.&quot; I wondered if that might be a banked track within the velodrome like they have in Florida and Colorado (outdoor tracks, both), or if it will be just some area to skate in while cyclists fly by on a wooden track. That's not so bad! I wondered if there's any chance inline skating will be included as a demonstration sport, but the list of sports, while including netball, fails to include skating as far as I could tell.</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Locations</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Brian Piccolo Park Velodrome</span> <div class="street-address"> 9501 Sheridan Street </div> <span class="locality">Cooper City</span>, <span class="region">Florida</span> <span class="postal-code">33024</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="26.035056">26° 2' 6.2016" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-80.269031">80° 16' 8.5116" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=26.035056+-80.269031+%289501+Sheridan+Street%2C+Cooper+City%2C+FL%2C+33024%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=9501+Sheridan+Street&amp;csz=Cooper+City%2C+FL&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
