Welcome! My name is Michael Gilday and I am a Short Track Speedskater from Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. I currently train at the National Training Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I've created this blog primarily to let family and friends know about competitions and travel. I also hope to educate a bit about short track and maybe even entertain. Enjoy!

Our last trials came and went last week. Not a great weekend for me but it was overall a pretty solid weekend for the men’s Oval program. We toke 6 out of 9 podiums and Cory Rasmussen won the competition. For me it was not a very good weekend. I had to rely on a good last day and some luck to cement my position on the National Team (pending the High Performance Committee meetings next month). Not the way I wanted to finish the season, but at least my last day was solid (2nd in the 1000). I’m not going to bore you with all the ups and downs of the weekend so I’ll just leave it at that. Instead, below is a slideshow of some of the things our team did this past season.
