Coach's Clipboard January 2020

In this edition of the Coach's Clipboard, we bring more great results from multiple competitions. Athletes have competed in the Am Cup/John Rose open in Roseville Minnesota, the Prairie Challenge in Portage, Canada Cup 2 in Calgary, and the long track MB Cup #3 in Winnipeg. This coming weekend, athletes will compete for the title of long track Provincial Champion on the Susan Auch outdoor Oval. 

After the 8-hour bus ride to Roseville and a quick shopping stop at the outlet malls, all of our athletes saw improvements over their previous outdoor personal best (PB) times and some even got close to beating their indoor PBs. With prize money available for track records and race placings, 3 athletes were in the money! Athletes Alexa Scott, Chloe Beauchesne, and Ryan Kulbaki skated well and were rewarded for their efforts. Skater Alexa Scott finished 1st in every distance and set a new 500m track record, a record previously held by one of Manitoba’s past greats, Shannon Rempel.

At the Canadian Junior Long Track Championships, which would be regarded as one of the most important long track competitions of the year for Canadian junior skaters we had 8 athletes competing. At this competition, athletes compete for the chance to earn their spot on the Canadian Junior long track World Championship team. There are 4 spots per gender up for grabs at this competition.  

Alexa Scott was the standout in the competition and won her second consecutive title as Canadian Junior Champion. She placed first in every distance and was just shy of skating a Canadian Junior record in the 1500m and the 1000m distances. She will be representing Canada in the Junior World Championships this year in Poland. Alexa also qualified for the Four Continents Championships in Milwaukee. 

Manitobans Heather Mclean and Lindsey Kent competed in Canada Cup 2 this past weekend.  This competition was used for the winter World Cup team selection as well as the World Single Distance Championships team selection.   

Tyson Langelaar was prequalified for his first ever Senior World Championships competition and opted not to skate CC2 due to injury.  He will be preparing for the the WSDC 1500m event where he hopes to place well.  Tyson finished the first half of the World Cup  season ranked 9th overall.

Heather Mclean placed 2nd in the 500m and 3rd in the 1000m which qualified her a spot in both the World single distance championships and winter world cups.  Heather is currently ranked 14th overall in the World Cup rankings in the 500m. 

Lindsey Kent finished 4th in the 3000m with a new personal best and was nominated to represent Canada at the upcoming Four Continents Championships this year.  This will be Lindsey's first ever senior international competition. 

Other Noteworthy Finishes 
  • Chloe Beauchesne had her best finish in Canadian Junior Championships finishing 8th overall, just outside a qualifying position. Chloe achieved a PB in every distance.
  • Gracie Grift placed 5th amongst Juniors in the 500m. Gracie also achieved a PB in all distances she competed in. 
  • Joel Simpson finished 14th overall in the ranking list and improved his PB’s in multiple distances.
  • Owen Hack finished 18th with a PB in every single distance over the weekend.
  • Emma Roche finished 17th in the overall rankings with Multiple PB’s.
  • Ethan Vandenberg set a new PB in the 1000m and 1500m but was unfortunately disqualified in the 1500m making his time unofficial.

Congratulations to all our athletes!

Doreen hit the international speed skating scene in 1964. Botterill was one of the four Canadians to compete at the Innsbruck, Austria competition. At 16, she was the youngest of all the competitors, but she achieved top 15 in all four events she skated in. To read more about Doreen and her speed skating journey, check the link in bio.

Jack McCulloch was the 1890 Manitoba champion, but his speed skating career didn't end there In 1893 he became the Canadian amateur champion, in 1896 the American amateur championship was his. At the 1897 world championships in Montreal he won FOUR events. After these wins he traveled across North America showing off his skating and inventions, like the trick stilt skates shown above. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #history #manitobahistory #celebrateathletes ⁣ #speedskating #skating #skaters #ontheice #hockey #ringette #sports #sport #fitness #Manitoba #canada #winnipeg #wpgnow #motivation #training ⁣ #mbspeed #uptospeed #competition #goforit
