USA Speed Skaters and Short Trackers Score Medals, But Great Britain's World Record Holding Relay Team Crashes Out in Semis

roadskater's picture

I was trying to see if I could get some streaming video going but I didn't get it all to work in time. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. Check myp2p.eu if you're interested. I'm using Ubuntu Linux mostly right now, so it's a bit different to get it all going. 

So here are a few links pointing to some of the latest in a big weekend for the USA both in the original speed skating (long track), where they skate against the clock and contact is rare, and the more television-friendly contact sport, short track, where anything can happen. (Yes I like the more boring event better when they broadcast it all and I don't know the winner in advance, at least. Short track is good fun, too.) 

Shani Davis is going great and Heather Richardson won at least one bronze on the 400m track, but now the USA has skaters at the top of short track in male and female divisions. Nothing can help skating of all kinds like seeing some USAmericans bringing home medals. 

Canada can be proud of their efforts too, and we hope the USA and Canada will see more 400m facilities soon.
