Olympic hopes. The Chinese short-track speed-skating team, loaded with world-class athletes, circles around the Olympic-sized ice at McArthur Island Sports Centre.
Kamloops provides refuge from attention and a place to focus on what lies ahead, which, this time around, are International Skating Union World Cup events in Calgary and Montreal in October.
The team last came to Kamloops before the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, where China swept the women�s short-track events.
Wang Meng won gold in the 500- and 1,000-metre races, and gold in the 3,000-metre relay, along with Sun Linlin, Zhang Hui and Zhou Yang, who won gold in the 1,500-metre.
