Milwaukee, WI – The 2018 Winter Olympics begin tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 7 in PyeongChang.
A couple weeks ago at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee Olympic speed skater Mitch Whitmore set a new track record in the 500 meter race
Whitmore 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.”
