World Sprint Speed Skating Championships


World Sprint Speed Skating Championships

The World Sprint Speed Skating Championships are annual speed skating championships. The championships are held over a two day period, with the skaters racing one 500 m and one 1,000 m each day. The times on those distances are then converted to points using the samalog system, and the skaters are then ranked according to the least amount of points.ref|1 The International Skating Union has organised the World Sprint Championships for Men and the World Sprint Championships for Women since 1970 and both are held at the same time and venue. The first two years (1970-1971), they were called the "ISU Sprint Championships".

Notes

# - If we use the 2006 men’s World Champion (Joey Cheek of the United States) as an example: Cheek took 35.19 seconds and 35.09 seconds for the 500 m races, and 1:09.25 and 1:10.17 for the 1,000 m races. This means that he scored 35.190 + 35.090 + 34.625 + 35.085 = 139.990 points.
