Nelson’s Ian Walgren has been chosen to compete with Team B.C. at next year’s Special Olympic Speed Skating Nationals.
Walgren, the only Special Olympic speed skater from the Kootenay Zone, won a silver medal in the 222-metre race and a bronze in the 500 at the Special Olympic B.C. Winter Games in Vernon in February.
That performance helped Walgren be chosen for nationals, which runs next February in Thunder Bay, Ont.
