With the kids back in school and the leaves changing colors, it is time for a new speed skating season and the Olympic oval in Calgary was host to the 2017 Fall Classic speed skating competition. Skaters from all over the world were there to prepare for the upcoming World cup season or to acquire experience.

Although open competition never gets enough media coverage, the second day of the 2017 Fall classic did, thanks to Canada’s Ted-Jan Bloemen. On Friday, the long distance specialist born in the Netherlands but skating for Canada since 2014, brought down the 5000m Canadian record from 6:11.64 to 6:08.06! Three and half seconds faster than the old record and eleven seconds faster than second place finisher Korean skater Kim Min-Seok. Kazakh skater Dmitry Babenko finished  in third place. Bloemen almost beat the world record on 3000m the following day.

Here is a quick  run-down of this weekend’s results.
