After the ice settled at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee, Wisc., at the world cup qualifier, 13 athletes were selected to compete on the U.S. Long Track Fall World Cup Team.

Representing Team USA: Two-time Olympian and Olympic medalist Brittany Bowe (Ocala, Fla.), Olympic medalist Mia Kilburg (Crestview, Fla.), Olympian Erin Jackson (Ocala, Fla.) Kimi Goetz (Flemington, N.J.), Brianna Bocox (Cheyenne, Wyo.), and Paige Schwartzburg (Ocala, Fla.).

For the men, two-time Olympians Joey Mantia (Ocala, Fla.) and Emery Lehman (Oak Park, Ill.), Olympian Kimani Griffin (Winston-Salem, N.C.), Brett Perry (Midland, Mich.), Ethan Cepuran (Glen Ellyn, Ill.), Austin Kleba (Campton Hills, Ill.) and Ian Quinn (St. Louis, Mo.)

Bowe set a new track record as she flew across the finish line, winning the ladies 1000m in 1:13.76. She is the current world champion and world record holder in the 1000m.

“Looking forward to getting out on the circuit and see what new talent is out there and what challenges are going to present themselves. Finishing last year as one of the top is definitely motivating. There will always be people coming for that top spot and I’m excited to defend it.”—Brittany Bowe

The team will stay in Milwaukee to prepare for the first world cup event in Minsk, Belarus, Nov. 15-17.
