So you’ve been watching short-track speedskating and want to know how fast they are flying on skates.

Well it’s pretty fast.

According to Olympics.org, skaters can reach speeds of about 31.07 miles per hour.

Although it’s a non-contact sport, there are still plenty of crashes as athletes try to get the best position.
