This past weekend, Saratoga played host to Winter Olympics hopefuls as some of the top speedskaters in the country competed in the American Cup Short Track Speedskating Championship at the Saratoga Winter Club on Weibel Ave.


The event was held in preparation for the US Speedskating Olympic Trials, which will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah around the holidays. The best of the best will then move on to Team USA to compete for those prized medals in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games!

This year, however, the Olympic speedskater who holds the unofficial title of "most medaled U.S. athlete at the Winter Games" has announced he will not be competing.
