Elks speedskaters in Calgary, PG

Personal best times for long-track skaters at Can-Am International

It was a very successful competition for the Fort St John Elks Speed Skating  Club at the Can-Am International Long Track meet held at the Calgary Olympic Oval this past weekend.

All skaters had personal bests and almost all of the skaters had personal bests in every distance that they raced.  Coach Richard Stickel commented that in all his years of coaching he can’t recall a meet that was as successful involving so many skaters.

In total, 37 personal bests were achieved throughout the three day event.  Racing at Can-Ams were Elks skaters Josh Telizyn, Brooke Braun and Kieran Hanson who are currently training in Calgary, as well as Hannah North, Matthew Mitchell, Jack Hanson, Connor Mason-Bennett, Austin MacGregor and Cheyanne Key training in Fort St John.

The Elks also had three skaters competing at the Prince George Central Interior Challenge Short Track Meet. Subhaan, Taha and Maida Ahmed.

Great job, everyone!
