You can go over it, under it and around it, but but you just can’t go through it and the competitors at the London Red Bull Crashed Ice Qualifier figured this out pretty quick Saturday (Oct. 20) at Budweiser Gardens.
Ten women and 200 men came out to compete in the challenge having to jump over barricades, slide under poles and skate around cones in a bid to move onto Niagara Falls for an even tougher course.
The top five men and two women continue their quest in the skating challenge with David Cimino picking up the best time by going through the course at 21.8 seconds, followed by Dwayne Blais, Wade Metz, Mark Robinson and Matt Conway.
For the women, Gwynne Attenborough had the best time of 25.130 seconds with Logan Sager coming in second.
The athletes who qualified in the London skate move on to the Crashed Ice season opener in Niagara Falls on Dec. 1. The top 65 Canadian men and 16 women at the Niagara event will move on to the season finale in Quebec City in March. This is the first time two Crashed Ice events have been held in Canada in the same season.
