US Speedskating athletes and Olympic hopefuls Erin Jackson and Kimi Goetz joined our Soaring Eagle Fitness Class.
Written by Kate Jungnickel, GISSV Athletics Director
On Wednesday, November 11, athletes Jackson and Goetz from the Team USA/US Speedskating talked to GISSV student-athletes about speedskating, how they came to the sport, nutrition, and sports science. At the end, students got to ask questions and walked away with vouchers for a free skate session at a local rink, along with some other goodies!
To quote one of our students, "I can barely skate, and then I see this and it's amazing."
Thank you US Speedskating for the inspiration, and we'll be cheering you on!
Read on here the Email Follow-Up from the US Speedskating Team and "stay connected to Kimi, Erin, and the rest of the team as they continue their journey to the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games".
