While the nation was still frenzied by its footballing exploit (or just asleep), Shane Dobbin made his debut in a televised ice skating race during the 5000 metre in Heerenveen, Netherlands. Last week, in Berlin, he skated 6:26 on the 5000 metres without TV cameras, which qualified him for the race with the big boys; this time he did 6:30.90, which was good enough for 13th. Given there's 28 spaces on the 5000 metres, he seems more than likely to make that, and could also take part on the 10,000 metres, though there's only 16 spots there.
