*The Meyer Cosman Award
This award, donated by Meyer Cosman before his death in 2006, is given annually to a Manitoba skater competing at the World Cup and International level who is on the Canadian national team and demonstrates hard work and perseverance throughout the season. This includes medaling at the various meets, showing a steady improvement over the year, or having a breakout year on the international scene. The winner has traditionally been a member of the National Long Track team, but any Manitoba skater on either the National Short Track or Long Track team is eligible. The full criteria is: 
  • Manitoba skater with active MSSA membership competing at the International level and/or has been named to the National/Olympic team or National Development Team 
  • Top Ten ranking in any distance as per SSC rankings
  • ISU podium finishes
  • ISU points per distance
  • ISU rankings per distance

The above should make it clear who has the strongest year based on points/placement. If a skater has a breakout year (first year on the International stage with new podium finishes, strong and consistent results, Olympic participation, etc) this may be strong criteria on its own. If no Manitoba skaters on National team or above fit this criteria, the Award can be held until the following year.

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
