My biggest dream is to go to the Olympics one day. I would like to go in speed skating. Another part of my dream is to be in the Canadian team, which skates almost every day in the arena Maurice-Richard in Montreal. They practice at least two time per day, 6 days per week. The Olympics I’m focusing on are the ones of 2022. I would like to go to the ones of 2018 but I’m going to be too young.
Before going on the Canadian speed skating team you need to go on the team called CRCE which is a team of people who are about 15, 16, 17, 18, 18, and 19 years old.
I like speed skating because I am really competitive and I like to do competitions. I like to do competitions because my coaches can compare me with the other girls and I can see what needs to be better in my technic.
I also like speed skating because everyone is so nice and you can make friends with everyone even though you are against them. At the end of (almost) every race the girls and me say “good race” and give a “high hive”. At the begging of every race, the girls usually say “good luck” or something like that.
Even though speed skating is not really popular, I really like it and hope I will go to the Olympics one day!
Do you have a dream like me? If yes what is your dream, and why is it your dream?
