Alexa on Fire: Canadian Junior Long Track Champion Interviewed

 
 
Alexa Scott was crowned Canadian Junior Long Track Champion, earning herself a spot on the ISU World Junior Championships team. The Clandeboye, Manitoba speed skater elaborates on her experiences being on the World Cup Team. This is Scott's second year skating to gold medals in the 500m (39.54), 1000, (1:16:.75), 1500m (1:58.39) and 3000m (4:15.40). The 18 year old defeated the field of 30 female skaters by a significant margin in each race, earning 159.945 total sammelagt points - 10 points ahead of her closest competitor. Scott will return to the World Junior Champions for a third time. 
 
MSSA: What does being on the World Cup Team mean to you? 
 
AS: Being part of a world cup team feels very rewarding to me. Its the prize that you get at the end of all your hard work, the chance to represent your country at one of the highest stages. Even if you don't win a medal at the world cups the experience you get from them will always be with you.
 
 
MSSA: Do you ever doubt yourself? If so, how do you push through that self-doubt? What motivates you to keep going?
 
AS: I think everyone doubts themselves every once in awhile. I find the best way to deal with it is by surrounding myself with a team who will support me even in my lowest moments.
 
 
MSSA: What is the thing you love most about speed skating?
 
AS: The thing I love the most about skating is the solidarity of it. I love that my actions only dictate the outcome of my race.
 
 
MSSA: What has pursuing speed skating taught you?
 
AS: Speed skating has taught me much about myself, its taught me valuable life skills about how to preform at the highest level a person can. It has taught me a lot about how much I can push and persevere , which is valuable when I question myself in not only skating but other parts of my life.
 
 
MSSA: Do you have any pre- or post- performance rituals? 
 
AS: I don't have any pre or post race rituals, I try and keep my warm up as flexible as possible so that little things can't effect my race.
 
 
MSSA: Who inspires you?
 
AS: I'm inspired largely by my coaches, the love and excitement they bring to the sport inspires me to do the same. As well as they inspire me to give back to the sport whenever I can. My parents also inspire me, they have made many sacrifices to help me on my journey and I will forever be thankful for them.
 
 
MSSA: What do you want people to know about speed skating?
 
AS: I think I mostly just want people to be aware of the sport. It is a great environment for young kids who want to participate in a induvial sport. As well it is a very well suited sport for the older population who want to keep fit.
 
 
MSSA: Where is your favourite place to compete? 
 
AS: The coolest place I have ever skated was probably Beselga di pine, Italy. It was anoutdoor oval located in northern Italy within the Swiss Alps. However nothing beats the fast ice at the Calgary Olympic Oval, it is a treat to skate there every time. 
 
 
MSSA: How do you get to your best-focused state?
 
AS: I get into my best focused state by keeping to myself and just repeatedly going over my own race plan in my head, sometimes I listen to music to help ignore the other sounds going on around me.
 
 
MSSA: What would you tell a beginner speed skater? 
 
AS: I would tell a beginner speed skater to just trust the process and your coaches, skating is a lot more fun in you let them do all the thinking ahead and you let yourself live in the moment.
