2009 World Roller Speed Skating Championships Facility- Haining, China

The following is what Bill Begg wrote about the 2009 World Roller Speed Skating Championships facility in Haining, China- WORLD CHAMPS HAINING 2009

What a facility, without question the best in the World, the track very fast & full Gymn facilities for the skaters, all the office & administration block & for you fast food Junkies KFC in the same block, next door to the front daw, if you are like me & do not like Chicken then Fish & Shrimp burgers are available.

They are building a brand new apartment block next door onto the Rink & the 3 stories of it will be team rooms during the champs for changing & resting up.

But if you want to be a spectator you may need to book quick, only about 1,000 seats in this facility, which is owned by a private enterprise.

Pictures & Report- Day 2- Roller Sports Ontario Outdoor Speed Championships

Day two of the Roller Sports Ontario Outdoor Speed Championships, held at Harriston’s CITC, were held in very cool & windy conditions.

Despite the weather, Sarah Hopkins and I set Canadian records in the 15km elimination races.

Sarah Hopkins and Morgane Echardour traded leads, keeping a high pace. The race came down to the last few laps. Morgane Echardour led the sprint and Sarah Hopkins took the inside lane in the last corner to win the race by a wheel & claim the record.

In the senior men’s 15km elimination race, I managed to take the race from the start and come in with a Canadian record time of 25-minutes 35-seconds. I think that’s a pretty good time considering the strong winds & solo pace.

Camilo Echeverri, who wasn’t feeling well on day, came back to win both his heat as well as the final in the senior world class men’s 500-meter sprint. Echeverri won the sprint while Travis Shaw held off a late charge on the inside- almost in the grass- by Jesse Pauley.

In the senior women’s 500-meter sprint, Morgane Echardour blasted off the line, but Sarah Hopkins cranked up the pace and passed her with about 150-meters to go to take the win and the sprint title.

Also setting another Canadian mark- this one in the relays- was the team of Morgane Echardour, Sarah Hopkins, and Dominique Lalonde.
