Latest News Kamloops River City Racers Speed Skating Club

Calgary - Victoria, Josie, and Sara Spence, members of the Kamloops River City Racers Speed Skating Club and now training in Calgary, swept the podium in the Long Distance Ladies World Cup Trials event today.  Josie finished first with sisters Victoria and Sara finishing second and third respectively.  
 
It was Josie Spence's third top-3 result of the World Cup competition, after she came up with third place in Thursday's 3000m and a third place in Friday’s 5000m.
 
“The win means so much more to me because I had my sisters on the podium with me,” said Josie Spence. “It's encouraging and we're pushing each other to be stronger.”
 
“Personally, I was really happy that a couple skaters that had a race plan phased out quicker. That gives me the advantage because I have more endurance than some of the faster skaters,” also explained Josie Spence, who was fourth in this discipline last season at the national level. “I sat in front and felt really relaxed, and then punched it at the end. Mass start is a waiting game, and I definitely waited it out in the right way.”
 
Other results for the siblings today included an 8th place finish for Victoria in the 1500m world cup trials with a new personal best time of 2:02.39.  Unfortunately Josie did not finish the race due to a crossover problem during the event.  Sara finished 4th over the same distance in the October Invitational portion of the competition in a new personal best time of 2:06.86.  On Saturday Victoria and Sara finished third and fourth respectively in the 1000m event of the October Invitational Competition.
 
The 57 skaters who took part in the World Cup Trials competition, held at the same time as the Oval Invitational events, were attempting to earn a spot on the team that will represent Canada at the first four ISU Long Track Speed Skating World Cup stages slated for this fall, i.e. in Calgary (November 13-15), Salt Lake City, USA (November 20-22), Inzell, Germany (December 4-6) and Heerenveen, Netherlands (December 11-13).
 
The list of Canadian team members will be announced over the next few weeks ahead of the first ISU Long Track World Cup of the season, set to take place from November 13 to 15 at Calgary's Olympic Oval.
