speed skates

*speed skates*
salam alaik to all of you. Dear Dr, am so sorry for sending this post too late. firstly, i would like to thank you for uploading this interesting, encouraging video. me myself never know about the making of the boot. 
as my first point, i would like to share about the parts of the shoe itself. it is made up of boot lining. the boot lining stapled evenly and tightly as any wrinkles at the lining will irritate the skater's foot
glue are from various structural bases to let the shoes be firm
it can also protect skaters' ankles, and hold the shape of the shoes.
2 aluminum blade holders-front and back of the sole
glue the sole of the shoes- wait for at least four hours-then wrap up the remainder
outside of the boot- first-the layer pieces of carbon fibre
commonly used in high-performance sport products
=around the blade holders- strong thread-
final layer- sprayed with the suitable sprayer.
plastic bag around the boot-tie off the end-vacuum out the air
-tightly compressed the layer of the carbon fibre
inject 'cresset'- type of liquid plastic-distributed evenly throughout the bag
'raisen' the carbon fibre
after couple of hours, the raisen dries in the boot, leave the boot stiff and durable
more about speed skating.
the event is usually offered in any big event such as Olympic Games. In the Olympic Games, long-track speed skating is usually referred to as just "speed skating", while short-track speed skating is known as "short track".The ISU, the governing body of both ice sports, refers to long track as "speed skating" and short track as "short track skating".
furthermore, the standard rink for long track is 400 meters long, but tracks of 200, 250 and 333⅓ meters are used occasionally. It is one of two Olympic forms of the sport and the one with the longer history. An international federation was founded in 1892, the first for any winter sport. The sport enjoys large popularity in the Netherlands and Norway. There are top international rinks in a number of other countries, including Canada, the United StatesGermanyItalyJapanSouth Korea and Russia. A World Cup circuit is held with events in the those countries and with two events inThialf, the ice hall in Heerenveen, Netherlands.
lastly, this video of the making of the speed skates really  inspiring me as it is 100% handmade. this actually shows that human can do anything if he/she wants to do it. Allah is very helpful and keen to help us no matter who we are, where we're from, and what we have done as long as we love Him too. 
thats all from me. thank you for reading this.
