Short Track in Dresden
Short Track is a well-known sport in the city of Dresden. But before the competition could start, several construction measures are necessary. Next to the 160 windows around the ice field also the safety grids need to be removed to ensure modifications in the installation of boards. 36.000 liters of high-quality drinking water together with thousands of liters of paint create the highly praised ice, where the Chinese skater Wang Meng broke the 500m world record (42,597s) in 2013.
