Tom currently directs the newly renovated Lake Placid Olympic Speed Skating Oval. His position with the Olympic Regional Development Authority also entails developing Short and Long Track programming. Tom’s long-term goal is to reestablish a full-time Long Track and Short Track Program in Lake Placid that offers world-class coaching and venues, affordable housing, access to universities and colleges, and employment opportunities for athletes that allow them to work and train.
