Fast Colombian in Heerde: Steven Villegas

This weekend were the trials for the Worlds in Colombia. This means that all the skaters from Colombia who were in Heerde did not even make it to those trials. One of them is Steven Villegas, with a time of 24.38 he won the 300 meter and in the 500 meter final he managed to beat everybody again. Also he’s the current junior world champion 500 meter. How come he’s not in Colombia right now?

The zebras from Czech

At the European Cups we’re used to seeing skaters from the Czech Republic. But most of them come from Prague or Benatky. In Groß-Gerau an unfamiliar team from the Czech Republic pitched their tent. Half of the team dressed in Zebra striped outfits and the other half wearing suits in the Dutch color orange. We were curious to find out more about these skaters…
