The Senior Ladies inline speed skating final at the 2019 Terras do Infante was and extremely high paced and super competitive race. The XVI International Tournament of Speedskating “Terras do Infante” took place in Lagos (Algarve-Portugal) on April 5, 6 and 7, 2019.
The Senior Ladies started fast and there was a lot of movement as skaters worked hard to hold a good position in a chaotic skating pack. Stien Vanhoutte (Belgium), skated very well early, leading with 5 points near the mid point of the action packed inline skate race.
Aura C Quintana Herrera, skating for Colombia, then picked up a couple of points, leading Vanhoutte by one. Clémence De Mallevoue Halbout, skating for France began making her presence felt, working to the front and starting to close the point gap.
Going into the final lap Herrera (8 Points) had a massive three point lead over Halbout (5 Points) and Vanhoutte (5 Points), and looked to be in good position for a first place finish. This is when Halbout made her move, powering past the other skaters and willing herself to be the first skater to reach the finish line.
Halbout would earn three points for finishing first, putting her in a tie with Herrera, who also finished with eight total points. Winning the final lap would give Halbout the top spot on the podium, which was quite an accomplishment considering the talented female skating athletes to skate in this highly competitive championship race.
