No, I’m not joking. Colombia has won the last few world championships of speed skating and it is very close to win it again this year in Anyang – South Korea.
It really amazes me that Colombia can beat countries like the USA, Italy, Spain, France, New Zeland, among others. I really can’t understand the reasons for this situation. I know that speed skating is not an olympic sport and that might be the reason why other countries do not invest much into it and maybe Colombia realized that it had a shot into becoming very good at it and it did it.
