Sponsored by Aspac Developments Ltd., community tours — to educate the public about speed skating — visited Richmond neighbourhoods for 15 months, from December 2008 to February 2010.
Two displays traveled throughout elementary and secondary schools, community centres, libraries, ice rinks, swimming pools and shopping malls.
Between their intensive training schedules, athletes also made appearances to educate the public on speed skating, sign autographs, and pose for photographs. Members of Richmond Spirit of BC and BC Speed Skating Association also volunteered their time to help at the display.
The display made its first public appearance at the official opening of the Richmond Olympic Oval on December 12 and 13, 2008.
