The Nelson Speed Skating Club has been awarded a $1,000 cash prize from the Podium Tracker Contest held by Intact Insurance Company. Every time a member of Canada’s long or short track speed skating team steps onto the podium in an individual World Cup race, Intact Insurance will award a local speed skating club. Maurice Poulin (back left holding cheque) happily hands the prize to Bruce Atkins (back right), Nelson Speed Skating Club president.
