Catriona Le May Doan Announces Guest Judges for ING's Speed Skating Challenge

The video entries keep coming in, and with the quality of the stories, I’m happy to announce that I have two very qualified guest judges to help me select the Top 16.

Joining me to watch your videos will be Kristina Groves and Olivier Jean. These two are great storytellers in their own right, and they’re both really excited to see the stories you have to tell about speed skating here in Canada.

If you don’t have your video in yet, you still have until January 18, 2008 to submit it at

Olivier burst on to the short track scene in the 2006-2007 season, and reached the podium in every race he entered. He’s also an inline racer and won the 2006 Canadian Sprint Championships.
