Manitoba wins 13 medals and two overall championship titles at the Canadian Youth Long Track Championships!

CYLTC, formerly known as Canadian Age Class Championships, was held February 9th- 10th, 2020 in Red Deer Alberta. Skaters age 11-15 had the opportunity to compete against the top athletes in their age category.  Athletes competed in 6 events, which included a variety of different competition styles.  There are pack skating events, mass start events, Olympic style events, and team pursuit events.

 

Team Manitoba had 13 athletes in total at the competition and accumulated 13 medals, two championship titles, and won 3 of the Dave Thompson memorial races. With each medal, there were also disappointments, but with disappointment came the opportunity for redemption.  The learning opportunities from race-to-race are what make this event such an exciting competition for our younger athletes as it gives them a chance to grow and improve. All of our athletes had the opportunity to shine this weekend and showed their competitive spirit by overcoming hardships and achieving personal records or winning medals.

 

The highlight of the competition was our two Age Class Champions, Ethan Vandenberg and Sofia Bieber.  Ethan and Sofia both dominated the game in their own way and managed to come out on top.  Ethan won 3 Gold medals and one Silver, taking the overall title by a large margin. Sofia also won 3 Gold medals but had an unfortunate fall during the 7-lap mass start event where she finished 9th.  Had Sofia not gotten up right away and raced to the finish, but instead finished 14th or lower in the 7-lap event, she would not have won the overall title.  An important lesson to always finish your race no matter the circumstances!   Congratulations to both skaters on their incredible performances!

 

Below are the overall results for each of our athletes and medal performances.  For more detailed results please follow the link to SSC’s results page.

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
