Hamelin, Tremblay lead Canada in short-track

"We all had good times in the first round," said François Hamelin. "We were all first on the start line, so it was the strategy that made sense: go out fast, make sure you stay there, so you don't need to risk passes."

Speed skating: West set to break Quebec's short track dominance
Gary Kingston, Vancouver Sun October 25, 2008

For hard-core short track speed skating fans in Canada, the names we're about to rattle off are synonymous with international success. Even for Canadians who only care at Olympic time, they can bring a knowing nod.

Western wonders
For years, Canadian short track has been dominated by Quebecers. But with four Calgary-based athletes on the national team, and an increased focus on the sport pre-2010, there soon may be a new source of talent
Gary Kingston, Vancouver Sun - October 25, 2008
Jessica Hewitt of Kamloops finished second in a 1,000-metre preliminary race.
"The sport of short track, I don't know if it was necessarily born in Quebec, but it was definitely one of the beginning hot spots where it was developed," says Michael Gilday.
Gilday, in his second year on the national team, was born in Iqaluit, Nunavut, grew up in Yellowknife, and currently trains in Calgary. So he's about as far from a Quebecer as you can get, even if he is bilingual, thanks to years in French immersion.¨[...]
"They're battling not only to get onto the circuit, but to get out of that sort of feeling that the sport's dominated by athletes from the East," said Cavar. "It's a sheer numbers game. There are a few athletes up against many. But they feel like 'we are capable, we can do anything that we have to out in the West in order to be on the top of the podium and make the team at the Olympics.''

Hewitt displays heart
22-year-old moves past DQ at World Cup event in B.C.
Gary Kingston, Canwest News Service - October 25, 2008

Jessica Hewitt's bold late-race gamble didn't pay off Friday, but the ISU World Cup short-track speedskating rookie from Kamloops, B.C., wasn't fretting her disqualification.

In her mind, it was like getting a merit badge for trying.
"The problem was, I hesitated," said Hewitt. "The girl in front of me slipped and I had my speed built up. I went for second and at the last moment, I saw first open. I was kind of questioning whether I should or shouldn't go. But when you're questioning it, by that time it's too late."
Canadians on track in Vancouver
MATTHEW SEKERES - October 25, 2008

The well-worn Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver's east end is a far cry from suburban Montreal, but for Canada's first family of short-track speed skating, it is beginning to feel like home. The Hamelins of Sainte-Julie, Que. - father Yves, the top short-track official for Speed Skating Canada, and sons Charles and François, both Olympic hopefuls - first came here in July, and will be frequent visitors between now and the 2010 Winter Games.

They call it speed skating for a reason. Long track sprinters have been clocked at 50 kilometres an hour.
Even on the tight-cornered, 111-metre oval of the short track arena, skaters routinely hit 40 kilometres an hour.

"When she was 18, she went to her first World Cup," Randy Gregg said Tuesday, from his sports medicine clinic in Edmonton, "and before she left, I said, 'Jess, what would happen if you were on the line against Meng Wang, the world champion and Olympic gold medalist?' And she looked up and said, 'Well, I'm going to try to beat her.' And she did end up on the line against Meng Wang and [Canada's] Kalyna Roberge and won a bronze medal. Lu sur

Short track brigade has a message
Pacific Coliseum, site of 2010 Olympics, is Canadian team's territory
Terry Bell, The Province October 23, 2008
Why wait until 2010?

Canada's short track speed skating team wants to give the world a message at the Samsung ISU World Cup this weekend: The Pacific Coliseum, home of the 2010 Olympic short track event, is their turf.

"It's the third time we've been here, and it's like it's our ice," Charles Hamelin, a nine-time visitor to the World Cup podium last season, said Wednesday.
Speedskaters have yet to warm up to Pacific Coliseum's ice
Cam Cole, Vancouver Sun - October 23, 2008

"I think the facility's . . . pretty good," said Jessica Hewitt of Kamloops, the lone B.C. athlete on the Canadian squad that will compete in this weekend's Samsung ISU World Cup, beginning Friday morning. "We were here at the training camp in July and the ice wasn't the best, but it seems to be getting better. And the place has been cleaned up quite a bit, so I think it will be a good place to call home."

Racer from Yellowknife looks to make his mark
Marc Weber, The Province - October 23, 2008
Canadian short track speed skater Michael Gilday is hoping to stand out on the ice as much as he does in his team's media guide.

"I get phenomenal support in Yellowknife and across the Territories and I'm grateful for that," said Gilday, who was born in Iqaluit (now the capital of Nunavut) but moved to Yellowknife at age two. "The government has a great program for amateur-athlete support and I'm really proud to be representing the NWT as well as Canada."

Gary Kingston, Vancouver Sun October 23, 2008
VANCOUVER - South Korean speedskating coach Jae-Mok Jeon, whose English seems good enough not to require the help of a translator, grins and turns to the earnest woman in front of him.

"In Korea, the way they train, it's more like figure skating here or tennis," said Olivier Jean. "They have private coaches. Parents pay a lot of money, and coaches for athletes at a young age are better than us in Canada, where we skate in clubs and it's more for fun.

Speedskating icon Ohno aims to dance into 2010 GamesNo short track to catch speedskating South Koreans
By Vicki Michaelis, USA TODAY

"I'd like to be known as one of the greatest speedskaters who have ever skated, as an American. In short track, that's a very hard task, because our sport is volatile."

"I would say he's probably the best he's been," Guy Thibault, high-performance director for US Speedskating, says of Ohno. "And he needs to be."
Ohno returned to the ice full time last season after winning Dancing with the Stars in 2007 and achieved a career first, an overall world title. He also won the 500-meter title at worlds.

"He's the most hard worker I've ever seen before, the most focused skater," says US Speedskating head short-track coach Jae Su Chun, who has coached South Korean and Canadian teams.

No short track to catch speedskating South Koreans
Cam Cole - Vancouver Sun - October 22, 2008
All the sports psychologists will tell you it's important to dream big dreams. Even if they're in Technicolour.
So never mind that South Korea's powerhouse short-track speedskating team won 10 medals to Canada's four at the 2006 Turin Olympics, including 6-0 in golds. Or that 21/2 years later, in last weekend's first Samsung ISU World Cup meet of the season at the Utah Olympic Oval near Salt Lake City, the count was South Korea 13 medals, Canada 6 ... and 6-0 in the gold column.

"What do you have to do between now and 2010 to reach Korea's level?" a reporter asks.
The skaters, the coaches, the team media attache all look vaguely insulted.
"No, but the numbers ...," the reporter begins anew.
They don't want to hear 'em. "We think we're there," says national team coach Derrick Campbell. "For us, our plan is to get stronger throughout the season and be ready for the world championships this year, which will simulate the Olympic Games timing. We really want to nail down that template this year so that next year we're just making small adjustments.

B.C. rookie on skating at home: 'It's been kind of crazy'
Gary Kingston, Vancouver October 22, 2008
There were no boards, padded or otherwise, or little red cones to round when speed skater Jessica Hewitt first started to slip, slide and glide across the ice.
When the temperatures dropped at her grandmother's cabin on remote Pavilion Lake -- "it's in between Cache Creek and Lillooet; not many people would know about it, but it's beautiful" -- mom or dad would lace up a pair of skates and off she'd go on the frozen body of water.
"Figure skates. I couldn't skate on hockey skates," she adds with a smile and a giggle. "I still kind of, like, tip over."

A day after a crash, he helps the American team salvage a decent World Cup showing
KEARNS - His skates were "destroyed" by his crash the previous day, and his coaches were up until the wee hours of the morning trying to fix them. They still didn't feel right when he needed them again, either. Yet Apolo Anton Ohno managed so well, you'd never have known.

"The relay was perfect," he said. "It was a great start to our season. . . . We definitely showed that we're right with the top group."

Deseret News - October 20, 2008
Ohno pleased with podium finishes

Ohno's final chance for an individual win came in the men's 1,500. After taking the lead earlier than he normally likes to, Ohno faded back a little to wait for the race to develop in front of him. But when Canada's Olivier Jean made a move, he placed his hand on Ohno's shoulder to create some space. That move earned Jean a DQ but also cost Ohno a lot of momentum and a gap opened between him and the leaders. Ohno was unable to recover from the situation in time and had to settle for third behind Korea's Lee Jung-Su and Lee Ho-Suk.
"I'm not worried about that right now," Ohno said. "We said this first meet was for us to learn where everyone else is and see how we can get better ... It's not how you start the season, it's how you finish it."
The World Cup season continues next week in Vancouver, Canada — site of the 2010 Olympic Games— and the U.S. is already looking forward to it.
"Just down in the dressing room, right after we finished the relay, we were already talking about how we can get better," Jayner said. "I think we're making progress already."

Médaille d'argent pour Hamelin

RDS - Dimanche 19 octobre 2008
À sa première Coupe du monde de la saison, le patineur de vitesse sur courte piste Charles Hamelin n’a pas raté son rendez-vous avec le podium, samedi, à Salt Lake City. L’athlète de Sainte-Julie a ravi l’argent au 1500 m.

« J’ai joué plus dans le peloton pendant la course pour me garder de l’énergie pour la fin, a raconté Hamelin au sujet de sa finale. J’étais en tête de la course avec six tours à faire, mais le Coréen m’a ensuite dépassé par l’extérieur à cinq tours de la fin. Je l’ai suivi, mais il restait peu de temps pour analyser la situation et après, c’était un petit peu trop tard pour que j’effectue un dépassement. »
