The photo of the week features young skaters preparing for the start of a Cradle race.

The photo was taken by Louis Christ at the Saskatoon Long Track meet.

Photo submitted by Bill Christ, Regina Speed Skating Club.

Bill will receive a Speed Skating Canada vest for the selection of his photo.

The “Photo of the Week” initiative seeks to promote speed skating grassroots activities and competitions. The speed skating photos can be of children or adults at play, during training, at competitions or even at a fund-raising event.

If your photo is selected you could win one of the following prizes: SSC vest, Louis Garneau helmet, a pair of Auclair national team racing gloves or a pair of Adidas sport glasses.

At the end of the season, all weekly winners will be automatically entered into a final draw for a Timex watch.

This initiative is reserved exclusively for Speed Skating Canada members.
