Long-track speedskating championships in Utah called off due to coronavirus

The U.S. long track national speedskating championships scheduled for this weekend in Utah have been called off.

U.S. Speedskating executive director Ted Morris said Thursday the meet at the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns will be rescheduled. The postponement is in response to results from COVID-19 testing and contact tracing.

The meet was to serve as the selection process for a potential World Cup team in case a World Cup series hosted by the International Skating Union is held in January.
