Hedrick, Glass,and Parra Started Training in Utah
July 1, 2004

Hedrick, Glass, Parra, and Ochowicz Headline
Facilitated Athlete Sport Training (FAST)
Program at the Utah Olympic Oval


Olympic gold medalist Derek Parra, world allround champion Chad Hedrick, world sprint team member Julie Glass and 2002 Olympian Elli Ochowicz are the headline speed skaters participating this year in the high-performance program at the Utah Olympic Oval. Elite speed skaters are back on the 400-meter ice as of July 1 in preparation for the upcoming season.

Parra and Hedrick have left the national team to join the FAST (Facilitated Athlete Sport Training) program under the direction of head coach Bart Schouten of The Netherlands and assisted by former Canadian national team coach Chris Shelley. The FAST program is in its third year of existence with about two dozen athletes from 10 nations participating last year.

Parra, Hedrick and Glass have each made the switch from inline skating to speed skating. Parra made the switch to ice and became the 2002 Olympic champion and world record-holder at 1500 meters. In less than two years after making the transition, Hedrick, a 50-time inline skating world champion, became the world allround speed skating champion last season. Glass was a 16-time inline world champion before making the world sprint team.

In the summer, speed skating athletes generally train six days a week. The competitive season begins in October. The Utah Olympic Oval is hosting the ISU Sprint World Championships on Jan. 22-23, 2005.
