Kamloops This Week

The Chinese short-track speed-skating team is training in Kamloops for the fifth year in a row.

Spectators can check out the action from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. from Monday to Saturday at McArthur Island Sports and Events Centre until the end of August.

The team is gearing up for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and there are several Chinese skaters pegged to reach the podium.

During his tenure as mayor, Kamloops North-Thompson Liberal MLA Terry Lake and a 22-member delegation visited the Far East in 2008.


The delegation brokered the deal that brought the Chinese team to McArthur, home to two speed-skating clubs — the Kamloops Long Blades and the River City Racers.
