Congratulations to three-time Olympic short track medalist Annie Perreault who will be inducted to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame November 1, 2016.

Four-time Long Track Speed Skating Olympic medalist Denny Morrison of Fort St. John, B.C., has been hospitalized in Salt Lake City after he suffered a cerebrovascular accident, Saturday afternoon, April 23.

It is with great sadness that Speed Skating Canada announces that Ian Hennigar has passed away April 22 after a courageous battle with cancer. Ian Hennigar was involved in speed skating for more than 40 years as a skater, coach, administrator and volunteer. As the Provincial Coach for Ontario and the Executive Director of OSSA, Ian mentored and inspired many athletes, coaches and volunteers to be their very best and to contribute to the development of the sport he loved so much. He continued his involvement in speed skating after moving to North Saanich, B.C.. The sport of speed skating in Canada benefited from his enthusiastic and tireless commitment over the years. Ian is survived by his wife Brenda, three sons and 2 step-sons.

Following a successful season, both on the international and national levels, it is now time to reward deserving members in recognition for their recent achievements and/or lifetime involvement in the sport. As at every Annual General Meeting, these honors will be given at Speed Skating Canada's Annual Awards Night which will be held Saturday, June 18, in Ottawa.

This year, deadline for nominations, which must be approved by a provincial or territorial Branch in order to be considered, is Friday, May 6, 2016.

The Canadian Olympic Committee announced that Short Track Olympic medalist Isabelle Charest will join Carol Huynh as assistant chefs de mission to Curt Harnett. Congratulations!
