Ten Canadians are set to compete at the ISU world short track speed skating championships next month in Dordrecht, Netherlands, their first competition since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down sports last March.
The March 5-7 event will be the lone international competition of the season after all six World Cups, including those in Laval, Que., and Montreal last November, were cancelled.
The 2020 world championships was one of the first international sporting events cancelled early in the global pandemic.
Leading the way for Canada is Charles Hamelin of Sainte-Julie, Que., making his 17th appearance.
