Hamilton Mountain speed skater Hayley Roberts, who represents the Cambridge Speed Skating Club, won the silver medal in the Open Women division this past weekend (Nov. 14-15) at the Ontario Cup in Cambridge.

In addition, Roberts was named to the Ontario Team for 2009-10 and nominated for Quest for Gold Funding with the Ministry of Health. Roberts has also qualified to represent Ontario at the senior qualifiers for the Canadian Short Track Speed Skating Team Trials, which will take place in Quebec, Nov. 21- 22.

Roberts, 20, is a graduate of Westmount Secondary School and is currently studying biology at Bishops University in Quebec and training at the CPV Sherbrooke.

Roberts is focused on her results. “My season is right on track, I made several goals this year, including new personal best times so I could qualify for the national qualifiers so it’s really satisfying to meet my goals as scheduled.”
