A Word from Vincent
From the moment I first stepped on the ice as a toddler, I knew it was where I belonged. So, when I found out at the age of 5 that people could go to the Olympics for skating fast, my goals were clear. Speed Skating Canada has a nationwide “Learn to Speed Skate” program, which is essentially the equivalent to “Timbits Hockey”.
As much as Speed Skating is an individual sport, passion for going fast will only get you so far. Success truly takes a team that includes coaches, athletes, support staff, friends and family.
Speed Skating, like many sports, is a full time job and the work doesn’t end when I get off the ice or when I make it home from a long bike ride. Most of my time spent at home is used to recover and prepare for the next training session, all while keeping track of eating habits, sleep patterns, and keeping up social activities with a small circle of close friends.
If you want to be part of my drive toward the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea, come on out and join me for a round of golf.
