Local high school student to pursue his speed skating dream overseas Westley Yates to train at specialized training centre in England Not long after he finishes his Grade 12 exams at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic High School next month, Guelph's Westley Yates will be hopping on a plane headed to Great Britain.
The year-old is going to Nottingham to take his short track speed skating international. It'll be a really great experience. Cambridge Speed Skating Club finished up a great season by sending skaters both east and west for national competitions. All six skaters competed well and did the club proud. Congratulations to them on their success and to the success of all of our skaters this season! Way to go Aaralyn!!
Aaralyn McGill may face her share of adversity, but victory is usually quick to follow. At least it has been this season. Falling in love with speed skating during the Vancouver Olympics, and thriving at it ever since, she recently returned from Quebec City with her second straight Canada East Short Track Championships overall title.
Capturing year-old all-around gold was especially sweet, after a potentially devastating start in which the young Miltonian took an inadvertent shove in the final corner of the 1,metre race. Penalized for being off the track, McGill went from second to sixth in the blink of an eye and now needed a stellar rest of the weekend to bounce back and defend last year's championship. I couldn't hear anything but the cheering. That pushed me to go for it and win.
