Alan Salacain '17 Participates in the US Short Track Junior Speedskating Championships
Alan Salacain '17 participated in the US. Short Track Junior Championships, in Midland, MI in December. He achieved personal records in all the distances, and two of his team mates made the the US Junior team. Pictured here (#70) skating in the 1000m quarterfinal, in this race he attained his AmCup time, making him eligible to participate in the America’s Cup Racing Series, the platform that picks the National team.
“Getting my AmCup time has been a goal I have been working towards for 5 years, I believe that participating in Cross-County at MA has played a part in me skating fast enough to achieve the AmCup requirement of 1000m in under 1:36 sec. I’m also very proud that two of my team mates will be representing the United States at Jr. Worlds in Bulgaria."
