Get up to speed on training with Team Canada short track athletes
For Training Tuesdays, we’re curating some of the most interesting and creative training moments from athletes. Check out the others here.
It’s important for athletes to diversify their training routines. Targeted exercises build their athleticism and strength, while varied environments often help keep their minds sharp and focused.
See how Team Canada short track speed skaters have been training on and off the ice over the last couple of months before they head into the Olympic season.
