DE PERE, Wis. (WFRV) - One of the many highly-watched games in Sochi is speed skating, and you can learn how to do just that locally. 

The Cornerstone Community Center in De Pere is teaching families on Sunday nights. Currently skating around the rink are people from elementary age through their 50's. Several of the young skaters who compete nationally say it's a sport for all ages and levels of ability.

"You learn a lot just doing a sport even if you're not going for big goals," says speed skater Sammy Holmes. "You're just achieving and getting active, and we're like a family here, so come join our family."

Sammy says his ultimate goal is to someday make it to the Olympics.
