Jordan Belchos will be competing in his first major multi-sport competition at TORONTO 2015 after winning the 10,000m at the 2015 Canadian Trials. Belchos has returned to the wheeled version of speed skating after spending most of the last decade on the ice. In his first year of long track speed skating, he competed at the 2007 ISU World Junior Championships where he finished 13th overall. He made his ISU World Cup debut in November 2008 and became one of Canada’s top skaters in the long distances (5000m/10,000m), competing at three editions of the World Single Distances Championships (2012, 2013, 2015) as well as two World Allround Championships (2012, 2014). He finished third overall in the 2012-13 World Cup standings for the 20 lap mass start event and won silver in the team pursuit at the 2015 World Single Distances. Second fastest all-time in Canada in the 10,000m, Belchos came just short of qualifying in that event for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Canada hadn’t earned an Olympic berth in the event but he was first on the ISU’s reserve list.
