I'm just waiting until the 10,000 will be cancelled and speed skating turns into sprint speed skating all around :p U know it's coming!


10000m mass start, like in cross-country skiing.

Well, no one’s talking about canceling the 10,000m, so this is just your typical bullshit.

Hey, IOC wanted to get rid of wrestling already, they are allowing pro boxers to fight at the Olympics given how amateur boxing has bottomed out and all the kids want money as pros, 50km race walking is on death row, it doesn't take a genius to figure out the 5,000 & 10,000 distances at speed skating will be removed as the sport moves into sprint-speciallist mode. 500m was one weak point for Netherlands for many years which maybe prevented the upheaval but once the Dutch lose the grip on the longer distances they will cut bait in 5 seconds IMO. Introduction of mass starts and relays into speed skating has signalled the change and it's only a matter of time the longest distances will be sacrificed and IOC will sell us the story "fans have demanded it" :lol:

waiting for @heywoodu's comment, here...:rofl:

I know the ISU is working insanely hard to try and kill speed skating with all kinds of bullshit made for the goldfish-attention-span-people, I don't need to waste more words on them :p

This has been going around for years, and recent developments (like the pushes to kill allround, also known as the very basis of speed skating) don't make it seem very hopeful.

Or save modern pentathlon, so they put wrestling to vote knowing, that such a traditional sport will defend itself against squash and... I don't even remember what was the third sport in the voting.

I feel I’m the only person here who would actually like the team sprint in the Olympics.

 

That said, they better not touch the 10000m.
