LONG TRACK

Racing head-to-head, two skaters take up their lane on an 400m oval track and race counter-clockwise, changing lanes every lap in order to level the distance covered. Long track doesn’t have the same tactics as short track; it's the fastest a person can go using only their own muscle power and it’s all about who is quickest on the day!

Long track speed skating is the track athletics of the Winter Olympics...
