Can very fast skaters get faster?

The answer is YES, they can be much faster and much more efficient allowing them to have more energy and speed at the end of their games. Skating at top speed... is all about applying pressure to the ice, using the right body positioning, making sure you have correct rhythm, timing and sequence of your movement, and moving your weigh in the right direction.
