Mullers golden at speed skating meet

Posted on November 14, 2013 by Taber Times

Kaleb and Mason Muller found some success in Saskatchewan earlier this month, at the Western Canadian Single Distance Meet.

The Saskatoon meet hosted some 140 skaters from across western Canada, all skating in their respective age/gender class.

Kaleb got three out of four personal bests and Mason did four-out-of-four.

Kaleb was in the top males division and skated against the top B.C. skater and number-one skater from Saskatchewan.

He received one gold (200m – 21.13s), one silver (400m – 39.14s) and two bronze (1500M – 2.40.55 and 3000m – 5.22.00).

Mason was seeded in the second division receiving three gold medals (200m – 22.88s, 400m – 44.58s, 1500m – 2.52.78).

Due to Mason’s success he was seeded in Division I (super final) for the 3000m, in which he did not medal but got a personal best of 6.05.74.

The Mullers speed skate out of a Lethbridge club and compete at the highest level in their respective age class across western Canada.

The Lethbridge club put a bid in for the final Western Canadian Short Track Championship to be hosted at the end of March.

The club won the bid so it has the unique opportunity to bring the best skaters, the top four from each province and territory from western Canada to southern Alberta.

There is a very good chance Taberite’s Kaleb and Mason Muller will qualify for the prestigious event.
