Without hardly any proper training the team has won 11 medals in 2 weeks.
The 2022 Winter Olympics open exactly one year from this Thursday. If the last two weeks are an indication, Canada’s long-track speed skaters are going to be a force in Beijing.
Despite having very little opportunity to train on a proper oval since the pandemic hit, the Canadian team piled up 11 medals in the two meets that made up the shortened 2021 World Cup season. Two weekends ago, they won five medals — including gold in the women’s team pursuit. This past weekend, they added six more — including another victory by the women’s team pursuit trio of Ivanie Blondin, Isabelle Wiedemann and Valerie Maltais. Laurent Dubreuil captured a silver and two bronze this weekend in individual men’s races, Blondin added a silver in the women’s mass start, and Canada also took silver in the men’s team pursuit.
