Short tracks and high speeds

Jordan Malone is the only short-track speed skater in the U.S. to compete in five straight World Championship events (2005-09). His mom first took him to a roller rink at the tender age of 5, where he just wanted to go fast. Moving from inline skating to falling in love with the sport of speed skating in all forms, Jordon typically trains on the ice between 4-9 times a week (4 in the summer and 9 in the winter). He works on everything from starts and flying laps to 3,000-meter and relay distances. The rest of his training is done off-ice (called “dryland” training) with imitation skating moves, bike workouts, or gym time. In all, Jordan trains 4-10 hours a day, 6 days a week, 11 months of the year—and he’s been skating for 25 of them.
