Thirteen skaters were selected to be part of the long track team that will represent the United States in the upcoming World Cup events. Two-time olympians Joey Mantia and Brittany Bowe will once again this year be the key pieces of the team. Mantia qualified on 1000m, 1500m and in the mass start, the distance in which he was crowned world champion twice. Qualifying on 500m, 1000m, and 1500m, Bowe will look to continue with the success she had last season as she won multiple World cup medals, was crowned 1000m world champion and established the new world record on 1000m. Amongst the other skaters in the team, we find a good mix of experienced and younger skaters. Ethan Cepuran, Austin Kleba and Brianna Bocox are the youngest skaters on the team.
