Speed Skating Races on Ice

The first international federation for speed skating was established in 1892.  The first time speed skating became an Olympic sport was in 1924.  There are 2 types of individual speed skating races in the Olympics – long track speed skating on a 400 metre oval track; and short track speed skating on a 111 metre oval track.  There are also other types of speed skating races which are not Olympic events: marathon speed skating, quad speed skating and inline racing.

Speed skating has been picking up in popularity and is a great workout and adrenaline rush. 

Popularity surged after the games at Nagano, where Canadian speed skaters, like Cariona LeMay Doan and Susan Auch, dominated.
