Richard Krieck has joined BC Speed Skating as our Sport Administrator. Richard developed his passion for sport and speed skating with the Mission Racers Speed Skating Club. The pursuit of high performance speed skating took him to the Calgary Olympic Oval, where he represented BC amongst the frigid long track ovals of Canada. During his eight years of training he also completed his studies at the University of Calgary.
Among his many travels, his time volunteering in Uganda, specifically through an opportunity with Right to Play, further ignited his passion of sport, recreation and community relations. His business experience in creating a t-shirt company, and additionally through the industrial world of sales and operations, furthered his business knowledge and interest for marketing. The calls of the West Coast brought he and his wife back to Vancouver, where he continues to foster sport development and community engagement within Community Sport at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
