Juventus junior, Cheyenne Goh (far right), spent a good deal of the spring and summer cycling; she was part of the Alberta Team (yes, that's Abbey McGill centre) that travelled to Ottawa, Ontario for Junior Road Nationals last June.

Cheyenne used the cycling training and competition to compliment her speed skating passion. After racing the ITT, road race, and criterium, Cheyenne returned home. In August she headed for Kuala, Lumpur for the South East Asian Games. She had outstanding success, earning a Silver in both the 500 m, and 3000 m relay, and a Bronze in the 1000 m race.

But there was more work and good news ahead . . .

Since September, she has competed in four Short Track Speed Skating World Cups - in Budapest, Hungary; Dordrecht, Netherlands; Shanghai, China; and Seoul, Korea.

A few days ago, The International Skating Union released the qualified quota places for the upcoming 2018 Games in Pyeongchang,  South Korea, and Cheyenne's three best performances earned her enough points to qualify as Singapore's first Winter Olympian!

Goh, a recent Leduc high school graduate, is based in Canada. She will go to Singapore to prepare for the 2018 Winter Olympics held February 9th - 25th. 

Congratulations to Cheyenne on this exciting selection!!
