Raphaele Lemieux Competes at Speed Skating Junior World Championships
Raphaele Lemieux advanced to Round 2 in the 1500m event in Chuncheon, Korea.
In Round 1 she competed in Heat 2 (of 7) and came 2nd with a time of 2:35.33.
In round 2, she competed in Heat 2 (of 3) and came 4th with a time of 2:31.19. Unfortunately for her, the heat she raced in was the fastest in the entire round. Every competitor in her heat would have defeated all other competitors in the two other heats. A very good showing for Raphaele.
