SPORTS.  Orléans athlete Kevin Frost, a deaf-blind speed skater, is beyond excited as he has received an invitation to compete in the Blind Impaired World Cup, in Glasgow, Scotland.

Frost recently competed in Lake Placid, where he brought home four silver medals

Frost, who competes in both speed skating and cycling events, will be taking part in the short track speed skating event in Scotland in April 2015. However, he has even more on his plate before heading overseas.

This week, Frost is competing at the Indoor Canadian Championship with para-cycling in Milton, Ontario.

"It's going to be interesting, "said Frost."It's all about the oval motion and this track is all about oval motion, so it will be interesting to see what I can do on wheels."

At the beginning of February, Frost will be heading to the World Masters in Calgary and, will be the only disabled person, competing in the long track event for speed skating.

"I can't wait for that event. It's an amazing indoor track and huge event, so it will be fun."

Benefits of two sports

Frost said he is taking in the benefits for competing in both speed skating and para-cycling.

"It's kind of neat doing both sports and I'm starting to realize the benefits of how they can help each other."

Frost said it is a lot of pushing and pulling, but the sports keep his legs at a high level of fitness.

"I'll do a high-end bike of about 400 KM to 500 KM a week to train. To keep going in these competitions you have to maintain a high fitness level."
