Shmyr set to skate for Canada

Courtney Shmyr captured the Canadian junior short track speed skating championship.

Shmyr, a member of the Langley Blades Speed Skating Club, was competing in Calgary at the championships.

The 19-year-old finished first in the 500m and super 500m events and was second and third, in the 1,500m and 1,000m events, respectively.

Her results earned Shmyr a spot on Canada’s team for the world junior short track championships in Australia in February.

This will be the second consecutive year she has skated for Canada at the competition.

At last year's Canada Winter Games, Shmyr captured a gold, silver and bronze medal.
