The photo of the week features Sophie Lamarre of “Les Élans de Trois-Rivières” speed skating club.

Sophie, 11-years old, won a gold medal in the Midget division at a competition in Rosemère on October 11, 2003.

The photo was taken by Sophie’s mom, Mrs. Josée Robitaille.

Sophie will receive an SSC vest for the selection of her 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.

This initiative is reserved exclusively for Speed Skating Canada members.
