Story behind the photograph
This image is slightly out of focus simply because, although Sebastian is only a beginner speed skater, he does have considerable exist speed from the corners. My camera’s focus system is not fast enough to track him. This is his fifth time on the short track course and he is really fascinated by the sport, which seems to come to him quite naturally. He has the stamina and passion for the sport and I certainly hope he can continue skating for a long time. I hope both Andrew and Krysia have the patience to train him well.
