The Richmond Olympic Oval, or the Richmond Oval is a facility in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. It will be the venue of the speed skating events of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and will be location for the official Olympic anti-doping lab.
After the Olympics, The Oval will be converted to a multi-use sport facility that will include two Olympic-sized ice rinks, up to eight hardwood ball-sport courts, a gymnasium, a 200 m track, a rubberized turf area, and a high performance centre for elite athletes. The speed-skating oval will be covered with removable flooring and could still be used for competition.
