|Sport Report – NYC Marathon & Olympic Speedskating<a>|
Here is the back story. DSB bank in the Netherlands used to be the primary sponsor for US Speedskating. Well, this fall they went bankrupt and left US Speedskating with a deficit of about $300,000. Thus in other words, leaving US Speedskating in a bit of a lurch. The sad thing is, there are very few large American sponsors of US Speedskating. This is surprising as US Speedkating has won 75 Olympic Medals, more than any other winter sport.
