I really look forward to seeing how Charle Cournoyer will progress in this sport. He shows a lot of promise. Happy to see Olivier Jean back as well!
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out & screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!”
Canada named the first group of skaters for the first four world cups today. They earned their spots by finishing in the top 3 at trials based on their 2 best distances. The remaining spots are discretionary choices.
Olivier Jean finished 3rd in these standings (based on 2 best distances) but he declined his spot on the team to train Long Track.
