No Webcast For USA Olympic Short Track Speed Skating Team Trials

We at US Speedskating are very excited about the U.S. Short Track Championships/Olympic Trials event that will be held in Marquette, Michigan next week. This event is an official Olympic Trials. NBC owns the rights to broadcast or webcast all Olympic Trials including this event, however, NBC has not opted to broadcast this event. Additionally, because NBC owns the exclusive rights to the event, US Speedskating does not have the option to broadcast or webcast the event. With this being an Olympic Trials, individuals are also not permitted to video tape the event for any use without specific permission by US Speedskating.

Articles About Canada’s 2010 Olympic Short Track Speed Skating Squad

The media is reacting with a flurry of articles now that Canada’s 2010 Olympic short track speed skating squad has been announced;
When the 10 members of Canada’s Olympic short-track speed-skating team were announced yesterday, the skaters in attendance were called to a riser in the front of a small conference room to be presented with a team jacket.Such is the popularity of the sport in Quebec that the path to the coveted jacket was blocked by a frothing pack of photographers and TV cameramen. At least a couple of the athletes, momentarily flummoxed by the crush of attention, couldn’t find their way to the podium.

Short Track Speed Skaters Nominated To Vancouver 2010 Canadian Olympic Team

“An Olympic selection process doesn’t last only 10 days, but a full three years,” explained Yves Hamelin, Olympic Team Leader for short track speed skating. “It all started right after the 2006 Turin Olympic Winter Games, with a four-year plan designed to optimize our preparation for 2010. Every day, I see talented and dedicated athletes and coaches working hard and together with one goal in mind: contributing to the optimal preparation of our Olympic team. Today, I am proud to introduce you to the ten athletes who will be representing us in Vancouver, and I am confident that they will offer great performances and will once again give everything they can on the ice of the Pacific Coliseum in February 2010.”
