AIS scholarship holder Brooke Lochland is currently based at the Utah Olympic Oval where she is training and following the program supplied by Desly Hill in coordination with local coaches. Brooke is training with USA team athletes each day.
During the northern hemisphere summer months the program focus has been on inline speed skating for training as summer ice is not readily available. Daniel Greig competed at the World Inline Skating Championships in Belgium and placed seventh and twelfth in the 200m & 500m events respectively. A great effort given his lack of inline training preparation over the past four years.
Ice training commenced in late September with athletes now preparing for the international season.
The first World Cup event of the Olympic qualifying season will take place in Calgary, Canada in early November.
