Opening the Olympic Trials

antonia_speedskating_2009     I am so excited to announce that one of my daughters will be taking part in the U.S. Speedskating Olympic Trials coming up at the Pettit National Ice Center! No, Antonia is not competing for a place on America’s Team — yet 🙂 — but she’ll be skating two distances as part of the clock check that officials do before the Olympians take to the ice.

     Another young (and fast!) skater from our speedskating club will join her, as will two other talented kids from another local club.

     This will be in front of a large audience, be webcast worldwide, and she’ll get her name in the record books! It’s a great honor, and she couldn’t be happier! More info about the event can be found here and at U.S. Speedskating.

     Congrats, Toni!
