Shani Davis Wins Silver and Gold in Speed Skating World Championships; Tyler Farrar leads Tirreno-Adriatico Cycling Stage Race

 

Just some quick notes here to remind that the World Single Distance Championships are under way in speed skating (they seem to like to have several kinds of world championships, ha!), and the Tirreno-Adriatico cycling race started yesterday with a team time trial. I followed the T2A (as we roadskaters might dub it) in past years and found it very entertaining, through territory reminiscent of the mountains of NC as I recall.

Stained Glass Colors and Churches in Prague

Rambling blogging and reminiscences follow, mostly triggered by Blake's comment on stained glass colors. It got me thinking of the glass in St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague, begun in the 14th century but not completed for almost 600 years.

17-Year-Old Short Track Speedskater Gets Ready for Prague

Young short track speedskater, Trevor Marsicano, 17, is off to Prague soon overcoming serious injury to skate his first international competition abroad. This article by Ian Pickus for The Saratogian mentions his mentor, "popular coach and skate-maker Paul Marchese."

Czech it out

Over the weekend, I had an opportunity to speak with with Jiri Prochazka, a journalist from Brno, Czech Republic, who is one of the founders of "Inline" magazine, and the website www.beinline.cz. He reports that Central and Eastern Europe have seen a recent blossoming of interest and participation in inline skating, from a very small base to become a visible presence in the parks of most major cities. In addition to a large Friday night skate in Bratislava, there are several smaller weekly street skates around the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Poland and Hungary have emerging scenes also.
