Cambridge Speed Skating Club Fosters Olympic DreamsThe excitement of the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi hasn't taken long to reach home.

The Cambridge Speed Skating Club, known for producing Olympians, decided to turn the West Region meet it hosted on Saturday into an Olympic-themed event.

With the banners of former Olympians and club members Amanda Overland (silver medal, 2006 Olympics), Cindy Overland (two-time Olympian), Kevin Crockett (bronze medal, 1998 Olympics), Mike Ireland (four-time Olympian) and Derrick Campbell (gold medal, 1998 Olympics) looking down on them, regional-level skaters from across the province competed at the Hespeler Arena.

Westley Yates, a member of the Cambridge club and competitor in the Ontario Speed Skating Association provincial short-track series, worked as a volunteer at the event. He was thrilled the Olympics put the spotlight on speed skating.

Also on Saturday, the Provincial Series Meet #1 in Cambridge, Ontario was visited by Alex Hourahine of Active Cambridge. Says Alex, "Saturday it was on to the (Hespeler) Arena to watch the Cambridge Speed Skating Club host an Ontario wide competition. What an amazing sport, grace and power never went together so well. This is one exciting sport to watch and again seeing these young athletes give their very best on the ice then cheer like crazy for their team mates when it was there turn to race & awe inspiring."

Surprise visit by our very own Olympian - Cindy Overland Sunday started off with some very exciting 200m individual pursuits and ended with competitive points races. We also enjoyed the surprise visit by our very own Olympian, Cindy Overland (with the silver helmet), who helped to track steward.

I would like to thank the officials, coaches and many volunteers from Cambridge as well as those from other clubs who helped make this a successful and enjoyable weekend for all athletes. This wouldn't have been possible if not for their energy, hard work and dedication to the sport and athletes.

2012/2013 Presidents Message PDF Another summer is blistering by and we find ourselves fast approaching the 2012/2013 speed skating season. To get a jump start on the season, many of our athletes participated in summer ice and dryland training. I know others have kept active in other ways, including Blake's mountain bike training. For those who attended the "Overland and On-The-Ice" camp (view photos), you'll bring some polished techniques to the ice early in the season. All of this has been made possible thanks to the tireless efforts of our coaches, support people, the many generous volunteers and the Board of Directors. As a club, our accomplishments are also a reflection of the tremendous effort our athletes put into this sport. Continued...

Local Speed Skater Finds His Stride in Long Track

Last year speed skater Dustin Miller suffered a back injury and a concussion that led to a drastic change in his skating career, for the better.

Miller, who had exclusively skated short-track since he began speed skating in 1998, was training in Europe with a Dutch team in May when he suffered the back injury. A few months later he took a fall at a training camp in Fort St. John, B.C., that resulted in a concussion, leaving him off the ice from mid-July to mid-August. CONTINUED @ therecord.com
