Speed skaters training at the Gangneung Oval on February 4, 2018, in Pyeongchang
The Gangneung Oval in Pyeongchang, South Korea, is where all of the pace-skating motion of the 2018 Winter Games will show up. Long-tune skaters wear spandex fits to assist lessen friction and maybe skate just a bit quicker as a end result. But the short-tune skaters at the Games put on Kevlar suits to shield against cuts from other skaters blades. Those tight turns can bring about collisions, so the cut-evidence suits are real lifesavers.
