Posted at 2:28 PM, Feb 12, 2020

The ISU World Single Distance Speed Skating Championships are happening in Utah February 13 - 16.

Big Budah talked with Olympic Medalist Derek Parra, who is now the Sports Director at the Utah Olympic Oval.

That's where the championships are happening.

You're invited to be at the events, which are the closest things to the Olympic format you can see. You'll watch as U.S. Olympians and the world's top long track speed skaters compete and possibly even break world records.

Even with a home ice advantage, Team USA has some steep competition this year with skaters from China, Russia, South Korea and the Netherlands.
