Après avoir essayé la glisse sur luge, Lucy commence une nouvelle aventure de vitesse—Cette fois-ci, elle lace ses patins et essaie le patinage de vitesse sur courte piste. C'est plus difficile que ça en a l'air. Lorsqu'on patine en tournant très vite, on risque de tomber! Mais avec ses amies, Lucy avance sur la glace dans une course palpitante vers la ligne d'arrivée.

Lucy fait du patinage de vitesse est le deuxième livre de la série Lucy Tries Sports conçue pour encourager les enfants à devenir actifs et à pratiquer des sports. Pour en savoir plus sur Lucy ou sur le sport qu'elle essaiera bientôt, rendez-vous à www.lucytriessports.com.

After trying the sliding sport of luge, Lucy is back for another speedy adventure—this time, she laces up her skates and tries short track speed skating. It’s not as easy as it looks. When you skate really fast around tight turns, you just might crash! But with her friends at her side, Lucy skims across the ice in a thrilling race to the finish.

Lucy Tries Short Track is the second book in the Lucy Tries Sports series, designed to encourage children to get active and participate in sports. For more information or to find out what Lucy will try next, visit www.lucytriessports.com.

Marc Gagnon, Médaillé olympique à cinq reprises en patinage de vitesse sur courte piste
"Ce livre représente bien la communauté du patinage de vitesse: des membres et athlètes rassemblés pour l’amour du sport dans un fair-play où existe, à l’extérieur de la patinoire, une grande amitié."
Dave King, Member of the Order of Canada, Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame and IIHF Hall of Fame inductee
"The Lucy Tries Sports series is terrific for children! It inspires them to be physically active and reinforces so many aspects of their social skill development. A really positive assistance to parenting children."
