Eddy Alvarez, Heather Richardson & Jessica Smith: USOC Speed Skating Portraits!

Meet Eddy Alvarez, Heather Richardson and Jessica Smith!

The three are all vying for spots on the U.S. Speed Skating team for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

“Any time you go to a new track, you’re always a little nervous because you don’t know what to expect,” Heather, 24, shared about the track at Sochi. “Well, now we know. We got to see exactly how it’s going to play out…It’s definitely a sea-level track, so the ice is a lot slower than where we train in Salt Lake City. The times aren’t going to be really fast at the Olympics.”

JJJ Fun Fact: Heather, 24, just got engaged to Dutch speedskater Jorrit Bergsma. Congrats to the couple!
