Days 3 & 4- 2010 Canadian Short Track Speed Skating Olympic Team Trials

The 2010 Canadian Short Track Speed Skating Olympic Team trials conclude tomorrow in Vancouver. Here are links to help you figure out what happenned so far and which athletes have claimed sought-after Olympic squad positions;

Then with a little luck on my side pulled myself back into the 1500 m A final where I came 5th. I was sitting well with 3 laps to go (in 4th behind Olivier) but got taken out when Gilday and Marc collided hard and skated into the back of me. Both Marc and I went down, both of my skates ended up tightly packed beneath the mats.

I brought it all today. Two second places. I raced the best I could in the 1500 and was inches from pulling it off. It came down to a mano a mano race between myself and one other and I just lost out in the last lap and a half. As it looks now, I won’t be on the Olympic team. More to come in the next few days probably, I just can’t bring myself to write anything now. Thanks to everyone for your support, I know it gave me the legs I had today.

The short track speed skating team for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games is starting to shape up, as two other skaters were able to secure their place on the team, today, during the Bell Short Track Team Selection at the Pacific Coliseum. Both Kalyna Roberge (St-Étienne-de-Lauzon, QC) and Olivier Jean (Lachenaie, QC) won their 1000m race, their second win in the distance in the event. They will therefore not need to skate the distance a third time as no one could catch up with them in the standings.

Today was definitely the most exciting day at the Bell Short Track Team Selection, and Canada’s Short Track Team for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games now has four more members. With a win in the 1500m race, Guillaume Bastille (Rivière-du-Loup, QC) joins the ranks, Jessica Gregg (Edmonton, AB) and Marianne St-Gelais (St-Félicien, QC) also secured their spots thanks to their first and second place finishes in the 500m. Tania Vicent (Laval, QC) is the fourth addition to the team.

Bill Begg shared his thoughts on the New Zealand & Australian teams.

Australia looks to have a solid team, if all are on Form, lets hope the Finster brothers can keep out of Hospital, after the last two Worlds, Mick Bryne has decided to opt for preparing for Worlds in Australia & Daniel Greig will test everything thats waiting for him & senior medals are well within his reach.

New Zealand has not the surety around if of recent years, no Shane Dobbin a 4 x World Champion & Current Marathon Champion, a very big blow for the Kiwi team, Kalon Dobbin has stuggled this season with Injuries & the World Games, did not bring any joy.
