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.

Join us in giving a big hearty congratulations to Alexa! ⁣ ⁣ From Sport Manitoba: "Alexa Scott had a phenomenal season in 2019. She won gold in the 500, 1000, 1500, and 3000-metre races at the Canadian Junior Championships, and she was also a star for Team Manitoba at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, winning three more gold medals in Red Deer and setting two Canada Games records. The 18-year-old from Clandeboye also skated personal bests in three separate distances through out the season."⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #speedskating #skating #skaters #ontheice #hockey #ringette #sports #sport #fitness #Manitoba #canada #winnipeg #wpgnow #motivation #training ⁣ #mbspeed #uptospeed #competition #goforit
How’s everyone doing?! If you’ve recovered from Tyson’s easy-looking but challenging dry land drill yesterday, here’s the next drill, courtesy of Jess Neufeld. Activate your core to complete these these weight transfers and low walks. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #trainlikeaspeedskater #Homeworkout #athome #gym #exercise #speedskating #skating #skaters #ontheice #hockey #ringette #sports #sport #fitness #Manitoba #canada #winnipeg #wpgnow #motivation #training ⁣ #mbspeed #uptospeed #competition #goforit
If you’re cooped up at home like we are, maybe this will get you moving! Tyson shows us one of his favourite dry land drills. These forward kicks are an intense squat that helps with form.
