Sean McAnuff (21) will make his season debut as Ireland's sole representative at this weekend's International Skating Union (ISU) World Cup Short Track Speed Skating in Calgary, Canada (2-4 November).
In January, McAnuff finished 28th at the European Championships in Dresden, Germany to earn two berths for the 2019 edition in Dordrecht, Netherlands. This season he will be aiming to build on his performance and move up the global standings.
"I am really looking forward to the season ahead," he said. "I will try to give it my all in each race and hopefully the results will go my way."
The weekend's event in Calgary will be the first of five World Cup events across three continents. McAnuff will compete in three individual distances - the 500 metres, the 1000 metres and the 1500 metres.
The event will be live streamed on the ISU Skating Channel (geo blocking may apply in certain territories) and for the first time ever, live streams will be available in certain territories on social media platforms, follow us on social media to find out more.
