JR MEN - NEED FAST TIME TO QUALIFY
Junior Men have some stiff competition. Not that I thought it would be easy, but in order to make the 12 Man final, these athletes will HAVE to skate in the low to mid 25 second or low 26 second 300-meter times!! Right now with ¾’s of the group completed, USA's Chad Horne is in approximately 7th pace (25.94). I say “approximately” because the clock has had several malfunctions and many skaters have had to restart in this division. It has not been the skaters fault but the fault of the timing equipment. Sometimes it does not stop, other ties it goes for several minutes while the crowd boo’s and the skater becomes upset that their time did not count.
Keith Carroll just completed skating with a time of 26.24. He is still in the hunt with about 8 skaters to skate. Anything can happen as we have seen in the Junior events over the years. Stay tuned for more updated information!
Here comes the final Colombian... the crowd is almost deafening... he is flying down the back straight away, he coasts the last corner... he drives down the last straight to the line..... wooowwww OFFICIA TIME 24.99!!!!!!!!!!
