Story behind the photograph
This weekend I have had the pleasure of meeting a double Winter Olympian, speed skater Andrew McNee. Nicest bloke anyone could meet and an excellent sportsman. I have never seen speed skaters “live” before and was amazed at the actual speed they cover the distance on the ice and g-forces generated to keep them at extreme angles into the corners. It’s very impressive.
