Since a lot of professional skating team like Justlease, Afterpay and probably Plantina will not sponsor speed skaters anymore, a lot of champions are now alone with no sponsor nor coach nor training center for the next season.

The Dutch skating union confirmed the creation of an elite training group that will welcome 6 to 12 skaters to helped them prepare for the next season. Five times olympic champion Ireen Wüst, olympic champion and world sprint champion Jorien ter Mors, world champion Kai Verbij and Dutch sprint champion Dai Dai Ntab are some of the skaters who could join this group as they have no team for the moment.

It’s a temporary but necessary solution. The executives of the Dutch skating union said they are hoping for some sponsors to get involve in the speed skating world and create new teams as fast as possible. At the moment, Jumbo and Clafis are the only two remaining professional teams in the Netherlands.
