Kristi Yamaguchi Skates in the Park ll

10 Kilometer Race

Sunday June 22, 1997

THANKS TO ALL THE SKATERS WHO CAME OUT TO SUPPORT KRISTI'S EVENT.

As for the skating aspects of this event , it was wonderful. Fantastic weather with bright sunshine is rare for San Francisco in June. The 10 K racers did a major service for our sport that we will all benefit from.

After the race, all the racers from C.O.R.A., B.A.I.R., Team Skate Pro, Roller Divas, Skeeler Inline Racing Team, Monterey Area Speed Skaters (MASS) and other racers and teams skated with the recreational skaters.

They helped beginners get down the hills. They shared their knowledge and expertise with the other skaters giving them a unique insight to the competitive skate world for the first time. This made the Kristi event a truly fantastic experience for all involved.

There were some negatives, but not on the part of the skaters. I feel that the skaters should have been treated a little better. Let's face it, we should have been treated a lot better. I am meeting with the organizers next week to air my views in the post event discussion. Send me your thoughts and I will make sure they are heard at this meeting.
