Ha! No, "the oval" as we call it was the venue for the speed skating events at the 2002 Olympics. The Ice sheet itself is 400 meters but it has a super cool mondo surfaced oversized running track (442 meters) around it. It's a great place to train at times like these when out school track is under a foot of snow!

He's ready... I'd say so. For everything from the 5K to the 800m!
