The New Short Track

We got to skate on it this morning, its so cool. A track made especially for short trackers. Its got NO hockey walls or markings. It has huge thick pads that are spring loaded so you don't kill yourself on impact, you kill yourself by being flung back into the pack of skaters! But the ice is fast and it feels official. Makes us feel special, no more hockey players destroying the ice! yaaaay!

Heres the short track national team practicing on the amazing new ice.
The ones skating appear as blurs on the far straightaway, and you can also see some long tracker blurs on the oval on the right.

And....I get another shot at that long track qualifying time this weekend! Theres another Time Trial, I just wana take off another 3 seconds!
