Ah, come on she was my favorite! She was one of the first Speed skaters in know by name.

Mine was Apolo Ohno because when I was a kid and short track was still an obscurity besides the 'real' speed skating (at least here) I thought his name was so awesome :p

Nowadays that's the one that would stuck in my mind the most as a non-fan, but 'Apolo Ohno' just had some mythical tone to my young ears :d

The only sped skaters I could name of the top of my head would be Apolo Ohno, Victor Ahn, Serekaite, Wu Daijing, JR Celeski, Anja Chong, JH Kruger, Simon Elistrov, Valiere Maltis, (okay I think I’ve got a small love of this sport.

No Sjinkie Knegt to defend his European title at home in Dordrecht next month, he has a rather serious leg injury after an accident at home where he got trapped between a door and his fork lift :facepalm:

Not even a month later, and more Knegt-news: while lighting the fire at his house (one of those wood things), his clothes caught fire and he sustained severe burns, especially one of his legs is in bad shape. An ambulance and even a helicopter came to his house and apparently he is suffering from third degree burns. That's definitely gonna be the end of his season, let's wait and see if he ever comes back at all.
