Articles on speedskating

I'm a member of the International Friends of Speedskating (IFS) and also reading the international speedskating list.
Several articles on that list seemed to have more importance and therefore I collected them and put them on this page.
Most of the time other members of the list have written these articles and if I know who did, I'll mention it.
