Season goals 2017/18

Viktor Hald Thorup

I have received a lot of questions regarding my goals for the upcoming season, so I decided to make a post about it.

To me this season is something very special, not only because it’s the olympics season, but also because it’s my first year as a full-time professional speedskater and a Team Denmark athlete. This also puts a lot of pressure on my shoulders, which luckily isn’t something that bothers me 

Even though the season hasn’t really started yet, Looking at my test races, performance in training, and my physical test results, I have high hopes going into this Olympic season.

My World cup goals and ambitions are:

sub 6:19 on the 5000m distance.
PR on the 1500m and the 10.000m
Masstart podium and overall top 10.
My goals for the Olympic games are:

Top 12 in the 5000m
Top 5 in the Masstart

I am confident going into this winter knowing that i have a strong support from my sponsors, teammates, friends, family and last but not least the strenght to reach my goals!

Bring it on!
