Speedskaters' families locked out of Olympic trials due to COVID-19

Jan 3, 2022

A father of a future Olympic hopeful and a four-time former Olympian both said on Monday they’re disappointed that fans, families and friends will not be allowed to attend the United States long-track speedskating Olympic trials this week at the Pettit National Ice Center.

US Speedskating, which puts on the event, made the decision Sunday morning, and officials from the Pettit Center made the announcement Sunday night.
