The skaters battled in a 1500m, a 500m, a 1000m and a super 1500m on Saturday and Sunday to decide who would be the new Hungarian champions.

Liu, Liu and Varnyu
It's the young but already successful skater of the World Cup circuit Liu Shaoang who won the overall classification. The 20-year-old skater had a near perfect competition winning 3 of the 4 distances and finishing second in the only distance he didn’t win. The only skater who was able to beat Shaoang on a distance was his older brother Shaolin who won the 500m. Shaolin finished in second place in the overall ranking adding two 2nd place finishes and a 3rd place to his win on 500m. The skater who finished second at last year's World championships in Montréal will obviously be back on the World Cup circuit this season. Alex Varnyu completed the overall classification podium. John-Henry Krueger’s brother Cole Krueger finished in fourth.

Jaszapati in good form
Petra Jaszapati had a great competition gathering wins on 1500m, 500m and the super 1500m events. She also finished second on 1000m. The nineteen-year-old skater will lead the hungarian team again this year. Her closest rival was Sára Luca Bàcskai who took the second place in the overall ranking with a solid win on 1000m. Rebeka Sziliczei took the third position overall. Sziliczei was part of the Junior Hungarian team last season and finished 11th at the 2018 world junior championships. She already took part in a few World Cup events in her career. Based on the results she had last weekend, we should see her compete against the world again this season.

You will be able to see a couple of these skaters at the International Invitation Cup this weekend in Heerenveen.
