They’re on the ice every morning by 8:00 a.m. Time on the ice is followed by time in the gym, lifting, endless squats, riding the bike. And then they’re back on the ice again. Supported by coaches, training staff, nutritionists and, of course, parents. This is a day in the life of a speedskating athlete. They are focused, dedicated and disciplined. And they have big skates to fill...names like Heiden, Blair and Jansen. But they can’t do it alone. It takes a Nation to support a future Olympian. Join Speedskater Nation and help the US Speedskaters bring home the gold in 2014. Your tax deductible contribution will also help support thousands of aspiring Olympians follow their dream.
