    In Hockey Acceleration is key!

    Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon has become known for his explosive skating. Compare to an Olympic short-track speed skater how would he do? This challenge was to see how quickly MacKinnon could get off the line against someone in a sport where fast explosive starts are crucial.

    Check out this race between Colorado Avalanche Nathan MacKinnon and three-time Olympic gold medalist for Canada, Charles Hamelin.

    It is a short race, from blue line to blue line, so acceleration was the primary challenge. The race lasts only 2.5 seconds at about the 1:25 mark of the video. 

    Acceleration is Key! Enjoy!
