The Richmond Olympic Oval is home to many talented athletes at all levels. Here at O Cafe, we decided to highlight an exceptional athlete once every week, and award them with “Athlete of the Week” status, as well as a $25 O Cafe Gift Card on our loyalty app. With the guidance and help of Oval and High Performance staff, we are happy to announce this week’s winner…
Name: Teunis Takemori
Sport: Short Track Speed Skating
Team: Burnaby Haida Speedskating Club
“Teunis is a dual discipline speed skater, training and racing in both short track and long track. Teunis is a positive influence on the training group and one of the hardest workers at practice. Teunis rises to the challenge of training on short track ice while seeking results on the long track circuit.”
Congratulations, Teunis! Keep up the great work!
