Skaters from China, Hungary, the Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Russia, Canada, Korea and Israel took part in the 2019 Shanghai Trophy as part of their preparation for the upcoming short track season.

Schulting continued where she left off
The 2019 overall World champion and Pyeongchang 2018 1000m gold medalist Suzanne Schulting from the Netherlands started her international season the right way winning the 1000m event in Shanghai. Hungarian Petra Jaszapati and Chinese Chutong Zhang took the second and third place on the distance. Hungarian star Liu Shaolin Sandor won the men’s 1000m just ahead of Chinese Tianyi Zhang and Korean Seo Beom Suk. 

The Netherlands, Hungary and China at the top in the relays
A ladies 3000m relay, a men 5000m relay and a mixed relay were raced in Shanghai. The Dutch, Hungarian and Chinese teams all finished on the podium of every relay and each won one. The Netherlands won the ladies’ relay, Hungary the men’s relay and China the mixed relay. 

Canada at the Shanghai Trophy 
Some Canadian were also competing in Shanghai during the weekend. The best Canadian performances went to Alex Lepage-Farrell and Sébastien Gagnon who both finished 8th on 1000m skating the B final. Genève Bélanger, of whom we shared the comeback story earlier this summer, collected a solid 9th position on 1000m. Adding to these three skaters who reached the top 10, Speed Skating Canada sent Léa Chamberland-Dostie, Camille de Serres-Rainville, Renee Steenge, Antoine Gagnon-Lamarche, Alexis Marceau, Brendan Corey, Ethan McKinley-Young and Francis Dumouchel to gain some more international experience.
