Event description

Description

We hope you and your families can join the Dutch Canadian Business Club of Calgary for the Speed Skating World Cup in the Calgary Oval on Sunday December 3rd at 12:30pm. We will be watching our Dutch and Canadian Skaters compete for World Cup points and medals while they prepare for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. During the event we will be guided by Lauren McGuire, a team member of the Canadian Team, who will also give a presentation on what it is to be a professional speed skater and what the road to the Olympics is like for the international athletes. During the presentation we’ll serve some (Dutch) snacks and beverages. After the races we are trying to set up a meet and greet with the Dutch and Canadian Speed Skaters (e.g. Olivier Jean, Ted Jan Bloemen and Jorien ter Mors).

The schedule for the afternoon:

12:30pm Women’s 500m
12:50pm Men’s 1500m
