It’s all about time in Speed Skating. Curiously enough, not much scientific research has been done comparing the finishing times of junior Skaters in talent development. Dr. Inge Stoter obtained her PhD at the University of Groningen in March of this year, doing exactly that. Last week she won the Boymans Prize on the Day of Sports Research in Eindhoven. The ISU is proud to have contributed to the research, which also led to the development of two practical tools for Speed Skating coaches.
