It is at the Malley rink in Lausanne that 61 skaters from 32 nations will fight for Youth Olympics medals on 500m, 1000m and mixed relay.

For some of these skaters, the Youth Olympic games will be the first international competition of a prolific speed skating career. Successful senior skaters such as Hwang Dae-Heon, Kazuki Yoshinaga, Shaoang Liu, Kim Ji-Yoo, Petra Jaszapati and Anna Seidel were amongst the medalists of the 2016 Youth Olympic Games.

It is hard to say who’s going to stand out of the crowd this year, but Korea is surely a good bet. Multi World Cup medalist and Vice four continents champion Seo Whi-Min will be one of the favorites in the ladies’ competition while her teammates Jang Sung-Woo, Kim Chan-Seo and Lee Jeong-Min will also be some of the strongest competitors to skate in Lausanne.
