MEDALS ON TOUR
In September 2022, Speed Skating Canada and longstanding sponsor Intact Insurance partnered on a cross-country tour with World Cup, World Championship and Olympic medalists visiting six communities across Canada this fall to help showcase the sport.
Medals on Tour ran from September 6-25 and featured stops in six different provinces, where members of the speed skating community and general public had the opportunity to interact with Canadian national team athletes and take part in both on-ice and off-ice activities, including public skating, school visits and events with local charities and community groups.
Canadian national team athletes Valérie Maltais, and Jordan Belchos were in Dartmouth September 16-17. There was a public skate and meet and greet on Friday night, September 16th, and a Special Olympics /Unified Sport event on Saturday afternoon, September 17th, both on Arena D at the RBC Centre on Commodore Drive in Burnside.
