The photo of the week features Carly Fraser (second from the left) on the start line with other Pee Wee skaters waiting for the start of their 100m race.

Carly, 6-years old, was competing in the Saskatchewan Open I All Points Long Track meet held January 4, 2004 in Saskatoon. The Saskatchewan Open was Carly’s first competition as a speed skater.

The photo was taken by Charlie Fraser.

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.
