~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Utah Olympic Oval is located southwest of Salt Lake City in the township of Kearns. The Oval hosted the long track speedskating events for the 2002 Winter Olympics. The long track speedskating surface itself surrounds a full size hockey rink and a full size soccer field. Thanks to its high altitude (1423 m) and the associated low air resistance, ten Olympic and eight world records have been set at the oval, and after the Olympics it temporarily held the title of "fastest ice on earth". However, this honor has since been retaken by the Olympic Oval in Calgary, Alberta at an altitude of 1035 m. As of March 23, 2007 the Utah Oval holds 10 world records and the Calgary Oval 12
