After six years, Speedskating-online is going to take the 2012-2013 season off. We may still post the occasional feature story, so make sure to check in every once in a while, but for now we would like to thank everyone who has helped make the website what it is. Thanks and goodbye!
Impressive season for Stefan Groothuis
Sunday, 2 September 2012
With his overall title at the World Sprint Championships in Calgary in January, a world title in the 1000m at the World Single Distances Championships in Heerenveen in March, and some outstanding results at the World Cups throughout the season, Stefan Groothuis looks back on a great season. Results that are even more impressive when you realize he spent the entire 2007-2008 season off the ice after an achilles tendon injury. After a well-deserved vacation, Groothuis reflects on what has been his best season thus far, and looks forward to the pre-Olympic season.
