Guliov says the speed skaters have been training hard and keeping in top shape since the summer with hiking, biking, and going to the gym.

The Cup is an event where skaters accumulate points towards the end-of-season Canadian rankings, which are used to help select athletes who will be nominated for a chance to be on the national team program for the following season.
