Speed Skating

Share

Both parts of northern Europe as well as the Netherlands claim to be the birthplace of speed skating, which has its origins in ancient times. Speed skating consists of a race involving athletes who are skating at great speeds on a designated track, reaching speeds of up to 60 km per hour (36 miles). The standard longer track used for speed skating is generally called "speed skating", which races conducted on a shorter track are called "short-track speed skating" or just simply "short track". Speed Skating has been an event at the winter Olympics since the first Winter Olympic games in 1924.
