Video: Watch This Speed Skater Go 57 MPH on the Ice

In an effort to see just how fast Olympic gold medal speed skater Kjeld Nuis could actually go, he traveled to Luleå, Sweden for a very special challenge. His team built an air shield – pulled behind a car – and a special aerodynamic speed suit to allow him to go as fast as humanly possible. Than they turned him loose out on the ice where he put it an impressive performance, hitting a top speed of 93 km/h (57 mph). Check it out below.
