Rules to play Speed Skating
Strategy is different for each athlete in each distance. They rely on the knowledge of their own strengths and the strengths of competitors to strategize. Depending on their skills, a skater may, for example, sprint in a long race to tire competitors or they may choose to hang back and position themselves to sprint the final laps of the race. In the heat of competition, however, much planning goes out the window and athletes must think on their feet.
