QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC – Over 100 members of the Canadian speed skating community gathered in Quebec City this past Saturday to celebrate the sport’s Olympians from Beijing 2022.
The inaugural Olympic Celebration Gala – which was held in conjunction with Speed Skating Canada’s AGM and Congress – was an opportunity to look back on the successes of this past season and celebrate the incredible accomplishments of our Olympic athletes, coaches and officials.
The gala featured stakeholders from across the speed skating community, including staff and volunteers from Speed Skating Canada and its thirteen provincial and territorial speed skating associations, along with over 30 Olympic athletes, coaches, officials and support staff members.
As part of Saturday’s celebration, Speed Skating Canada presented seven awards to individuals that represented Canada on and off the ice at Beijing 2022. The remainder this year’s award winners will be announced on the organization’s social channels in the coming weeks.
