Groves takes Bronze at 3000m Speed Skating

Today at the Richmond Oval, I was in section 120 row 8 which has a great view of the finish line.  The start line was in the far corner and out of view.

Canada had 3 competitors in this race.  Kristina Goves took the bronze medal even though it is not her strongest event.  I expect to see more Canadian more medals at the oval.

In other news, the Czech Republic’s Yaromir Yager and other members of the Czech team were there (6 rows behind me) to cheer Martina Sablikova.  However, Yager left before it was confirmed she won a medal, or maybe event before she skated the second time.  (The media probably got to him.)
