Manitoba Speed Skating Association – Calgary, January 8, 2018 – Heather McLean of Winnipeg, Manitoba qualifies for the 2018 Olympic Team.

After placing second in the women’s 500m event on January 5th, McLean won the women’s 1000m event, Monday, at the 2018 Long Track Team Selections that are slated to be held until Tuesday at Calgary’s Olympic Oval. 

“I was a little disappointed in my 500m earlier at this competition, so to come back with this 1000m and finish strong, I couldn’t ask for a better race,” said McLean. “That was probably the best execution I’ve come up with this season as far as race plans go in that distance. I see the 1000m as a great challenge and I see the girls I compete against in the 500m go out and skate the 1000m with confidence, and that inspires me to do the same.”

“I’ve never been at the Olympics, so for me to have two opportunities to go out and race is a good thing, because I want to get as much experience as I can in that environment.”
