posted by Linda Jager - Oct. 31, 2011 07:47 PM

It was an exciting, and busy weekend of short track racing in Cleveland Heights, OH, as a field of over 230 skaters took to the ice for the American Cup 2 and the Ohio Invitational.

In American Cup Group 2 competition, Thomas Insuk Hong (Laurel, MD) took first in the men’s overall standings with 3800 points and wins in three (500, 1000 and 1500m) of his four distances raced this weekend. Evan Opeka (McMurray, PA) placed second overall with 2912 points, and Aaron Tran (Federal Way, WA) took third with 2378 points and a win the in second 1500m event of the weekend.

SARAH WARREN AND THOMAS HONG TO REPRESENT TEAM USA AT 2012 WINTER YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES
posted by Linda Jager - Oct. 31, 2011 07:45 PM

Following the conclusion of yesterday’s American Cup 2 in Cleveland, OH, Sarah Warren, 15, (Willowbrook, IL) and Thomas Insuk Hong, 14, (Laurel, MD) were nominated to the United States  Olympic Committee to represent Team USA in short track at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Innsbruck, Austria, January 13-22. The skaters will compete in the 500m and 1000m distances, and the mixed 3000m relay. US Speedskating coach Joe Rohraff (Freeland, MI) will serve as the U.S. YOG Short Track Coach and Team Leader.

Warren and Hong qualified for their nominations by placing first in the overall classification among the athletes in Group 2, and among athletes in the Youth Olympic Games eligible age bracket (those born between January 1, 1996 and December 31st, 1997), following competition at this weekend’s American Cup 2.

“I was so happy, I didn’t really believe it happened.” said Warren yesterday about being named to the YOG squad. “It was a jaw dropping moment. I am so thankful to have this opportunity while I’m so young. I feel really confident to show the world how great the U.S. can be.”

Hong agreed, “I felt a feeling of relief and accomplishment. I was racing hard over the weekend, and I was just glad it was finally over. But then again, I felt great to have stood out on the ice with Sarah to be representing the U.S. I'm looking forward to just skating against new opponents from different parts of the world and racing my hardest to do so. Winning this spot was a goal of mine ever since I heard of the YOG, and my family is proud that I earned the spot.”

Rohraff looks forward to Hong and Warren’s turn on the international ice. “I definitely think they are both ready to break into the international scene at the junior level,” he said. “ The 500m and 1000m distances are among  Sarah’s strongest, and the strongest for Thomas as well. This is the first time that the U.S. has participated in short track in the YOG. It’s going to be real exciting for the skaters and the U.S, to have another platform to continue to make our mark in the sport.”

Hong and Warren both have spent many years on the ice. Hong began skating at the age of 4 1/2, and Warren at age 10, switching over from the sport of ice hockey. Both attend school full-time in addition to their training, and both maintain a 4.0 GPA.

 

“Because I am very dedicated to school, it's been fairly difficult to manage both short track and school. If needed, I would sometimes miss practice to complete schoolwork,” explained Hong, who is enrolled in the gifted and talented program at

his school.

In addition to her studies and skating, Warren also participates in soccer and track and field and is also enrolled in an all honors course-load at her high school. “I really can’t procrastinate,” explained Warren when asked how she balances school and training. “I have to just bear down and do it. Success in both school and sport takes hard work to stay

on top.”

For now, Hong and Warren will head back to their home clubs to train for the YOG. US Speedskating will announce the two nominations for long track YOG athletes in December. There are only 74 days until the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games. To find out more about the YOG, please visit http://www.innsbruck2012.com/en.

Congratulations to Sarah, Thomas, and good luck to both athletes and coach Rohraff in Innsbruck

Hello Everyone:

On behalf of the Ohio Speedskating Association, I wanted to take this opportunity to again thank everyone who participated in the recently concluded ST American Cup II/Ohio Invitational Meet on October 29 and 30, 2011, in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. 

To all those skaters that competed and the coaches and parents that helped prepare them, I thank you. To the Organizing Committee, Medical Team, Hospitality Committee and all the Officials and Volunteers that helped during the weekend, I thank you.  To those who stepped forward to help during the weekend in areas where volunteers were still needed or to give breaks, I thank you.  Without all of you, this event would not have been the success that is was. I especially want to thank all those officials and volunteers that kept us close to being on schedule, moving the meet along each day with sincere commitment.   

With a record number of competitors in Cleveland Heights for a weekend meet and two long days of racing, the excitement and cheering that could be felt in the rink never ended until the last skater crossed the finish line in the last race of the Ohio Invitational on Sunday evening. 

As the meet came to a close on Sunday, many people commented on how much fun they had not only racing, but watching the competition in between their races as well.  With skaters from Canada and Australia in town, some of our younger skaters saw international racing for the first time. 

Until the next time you come to Cleveland Heights to skate at the home of the Cleveland Heights Speedskating Club---- Good Skating!!! 

Best regards, 

Tom Frank

Meet Director
