Extractions: Alpha Index Index by Sport History Bits Forum ... Search Table of Contents Traditional speed skating is conducted on a 400-meter track against the clock. Although there are two racers on the course simultaneously, they're not really competing against one another. The finishing time is the deciding factor. Since 1998, the 500-meter has been decided by the aggregate time in two trials. In all other races, there's a single time trial. Three women's races were held as demonstration events in 1932, but women's speed skating didn't become a medal sport until 1960.

Search Table of Contents Short track speed skating was a demonstration sport at the 1988 Winter Olympics and became a medal sport in 1992. This form of the sport is also known as "pack style," because a pack of four skaters compete on a 111.12-meter track, with the winner being the first to cross the finish line. The four corners of the course are marked by rubber blocks. Skaters are allowed to enter the infield, but they have to pass outside the markers on the turns. A series of elimination heats are held, leading to the semi-finals and finals. Semi-final losers compete in their own final to determine fifth through eighth places.
