Milwaukee, WI – Happened to be on hand Friday at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee to watch Olympic speedskater Mitch Whitmore set a new track record in the 500 meter race.
Whitmore is headed to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, from Friday, Feb. 9 to Sunday, Feb. 25.
Whitmore said on Friday he was at the “end of a training cycle” and “the skating felt better today than during the trials.”
“I was surprised how fast it was,” he said. “From the outset of the season it was a goal to get the track record here but I don’t think I’m at my peak yet.”
