Local flavor at Short Track Fall World Cup Selection

The Fall World Cup Selection event is set to launch the short track speed skating season next week, at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. The 3-day event will kick off Tuesday, with races starting at 1pm local. Two talented local skaters will be on the ice for the competition. Jessica Hewitt (Kamloops, CB), member of the development team, and Cory Rasmussen (Prince George, CB), non official World record holder in the 500m, are both ready to try and get a spot on the team. This should help get the Vancouver public excited about short track speed skating, as the city is preparing to host the second stop of the Short Track World Cup, October 24-26, as well as the Olympic Winter Games in 2010. Entry is free for the Fall World Cup Selection event. For World Cup tickets, please click here.
