Athlete of the Month, Jordan Campbell

 
We asked Jordan Campbell about her speed skating career, what she expects out of the 2020-21 season, and how to push through self-doubt. 
 

MSSA: What are your goals for the 2020-2021 season? 
JC: My goals for the season are to improve my technique and break 48 seconds in my 500 and to qualify for junior selections again. 

MSSA: Do you ever doubt yourself, and if so how do you push through that self-doubt? What motivates you to keep going? 
JC: I do doubt myself sometimes, when I think negatively I try to think of something technical and visualize my skating. I get motivated by focusing on what I'm doing in the moment and challenging myself all the time. 

MSSA: What is the thing you love most about speed skating? 
JC: Seeing how fast I can go and the friends I have in the sport. 

MSSA: What has pursuing speed skating taught you? 
JC: It has taught me to be tough and be resilient in the things I do, and that not giving up really pays off. 

MSSA: Do you have any pre- or post- performance rituals? 
JC: I time everything backwards from the warmup (certain time to eat before warming up, etc) and I have a certain warmup that I don't change very often. 

MSSA: What do you want people to know about speed skating? 
JC: Even though it's an individual sport, the team atmosphere is amazing. It's also harder than it looks. 

MSSA: Where is your favourite place to compete? 
JC: I haven't competed in very many places but I'd say Calgary because there you have the chance to improve your times on very good ice and usually next to fast skaters. 

MSSA: How do you get to your best-focused state? 
JC: Taking deep breaths and visualizing my skating. 

MSSA: What would you tell a beginner speed skater? Or what do you wish you had known when you were starting out? 
JC: I'd say focus more on technique than speed and don't take your results too seriously.
