Shruti Kotwal Breaks National Record In Ice Speed Skating In USA
Shruti Kotwal has become India’s fastest ice speed skater as she broke the national record in ice speed skating. She completed a 500m race in just 42.21 seconds.
Shruti Kotwal, the fastest ice speed skater in India, broke the national record for ice speed skating at the very beginning of the season.
Shruti was successful in a number of competitions she had come up in the months ahead by finishing a 500 meter race in 42.21 seconds just 2 weeks before the AmCup 2022.
Her record was recently established and formally confirmed by the Olympic Oval following a promising showing in the Desert Classic competition last month.
Shruti Kotwal, a multiple national record holder, said on this historic occasion, “I am incredibly happy with the achievements we were able to accomplish in the last 2 championships.
Since the previous several weeks, we have realized that the level of competition would increase even if we are striving to excel and compete at the best level.
Even though it feels amazing to break a record, I want to keep beating my own records. Coming up are a number of more championships, and I intend to compete well in each of them.”
Athletes who participate in speed skating compete against one another on an ice-based track while utilizing skates to get around the course.
Shruti Kotwal started with roller skates at the age of seven, and her love towards ice speed skating grew slowly.
Ice skating requires body-balancing and very high concentration during movement at high speeds.
Shruti & her team are happy to see the kind of support they are receiving and she hopes to inspire the next generation of speed skaters from India.
She said that our country has a lot of promising talent and she urged the sports authorities and ministries to provide kids with better infrastructure for them to compete at the highest level in the world.
