Sean and I flew 11,000km's to Seoul and another 4 hour bus to PyeongChang to race in the official 2018 Winter Olympic test event and World Cup #4! It is so cool being exposed to different cultures and seeing the World while we travel and skate. The hotel was different than anything we had seen before. Everything was white and there were no chairs or couches, but we still enjoyed every minute of being there!
Despite getting disqualified in the 1000m (Ryan) we both ended up with personal bests and Irish National records in the 500m and 1500m distances. Racing with the worlds best is like nothing else, and the experience from this competition was priceless. We both learned a lot and we were very happy with our placement and racing overall.
