The first sign of winter is a Brazilian speed skating record being broken...

Like so many sports, speed skating really doesn't need a mixed relay. Or in this case it doesn't even need a relay at all. There's already the team pursuit and the bullshit team sprint.

He's 39 years old, but this is the only time of him on the 1.500 that's even been published.

The US had their team trials recently, but I’m not that hopeful. The times were rather sluggish. I know it’s early season, but Skating and Biathlon are our weakest winter sports right now.

Someone is badly forgetting Nordic combined and ski jumping :p 

 

USA isn't a biathlon power, but they are significantly better at it than both ski jumping and NoKo. Same goes for speed skating by the way, although it's far from the days of Chad Hedrick (ugh), Shani Davis (miss him) and Joey Cheek. Still, there's people like Brittany Bowe and Heather Bergsma, they might not dominate, they are definitely world class.
