NSC 2012 : Second round !

The second round of the National SpeedSkating Circuit took place on February 9th, 2012 at the Pattisons West Skating Center of Federal Way (WA). The night was animated by the spectacular fall of Jeremy Anderson which cost him a collarbone.

Season 3, round 2

Pro NSC 2012 - round 2The least one can say is that the competition was harsh during the second round of the NSC. The striking moment of the evening was without any doubt the dramatic skating off the track of Jeremy Anderson and Jake Powers on 800m grand Champion. Anderson was transported to the hospital with a broken collarbone. He had surgery with plates fit to reinforce the bone. His recovery should be fast. The organizers hope to see him up and about for the April round.As for Jake Powers, his arm seems to be immobilized.

William Bowen (#77) keeps on dominating speed races

Pro NSC 2012 - round 2

He made his presence felt on the 300m in front of Donavon Sellers and Brandon Hall. During the previous round in January, he had already outstripped Stephen Carter (#10) and Kevin Carroll (#13).
Bowen also wins the 500m in front of Brandon Hall and Sean o’Brien. Kevin Carroll would have been disqualified for having pushed another competitor.

Jarrett Paul in front for endurance races

Jarrett Paul managed to make the difference during the 1000m of this second round in front of Jake Powers and Michael Cheek. The latter had won the previous round.

On 1600m it is almost the same Top-3 as on 1000m. Jarrett Paul ends up first in front of Michael Cheek and Jake Powers. The three skaters were already on the podium of the previous round.

800 m Grand Champion

The race is off to a flying start with Michael Cheek leading. Half a lap before the arrival, Jeremy Anderson and Jake powers crashed into a wall. Powers is groggy and takes some time to get back up because of the force of the impact.

As for Anderson, he leaves with the casualty. In the end, the race is won by Michael Cheek, in front of sprint specialist William Bowen and Donavon Sellers. Cheeks wins the offensive bonus while Owen gets that of the most starts.

100m

Faithful to his reputation, Jeremy Anderson wins the 100m once again in 8.53, in front of Donavon Sellers (8.55) and Brandon Hall (8.59).
