Olympic Pedigree: Dutch skater Yvonne van Gennip won three gold medals and broke two world records during the 1988 Winter Games’ speed skating competitions.

 

Be an Olympian: Go skating on the rink that bills itself as having the “world’s fastest ice.” You can also sign up for the Oval’s one-on-one program, which offers private speed skating lessons from professional coaches (from $35).
