Big cheesin’ and cowboy hats with the niece. Getting these moments captured means the world. Huge thank you to @ambertonerphotography!

How to do a 10s wingate test. What is a wingate? A way to measure power in absolute watts and watts/kilogram. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk. #help #tipswelcome #wherearemyskates

Descente x SSC bringing the heat 🔥! We’re putting in the time and training hard so we can take on the world. We’re lucky to have a partner like Descente keeping us cool, on and off the ice. Keep an eye out for some of these items through @descente_kr 👀. @ssc_pvc #fasterforward #SSC #FREEZERUN

Only thing better than a Canadian beer, is sharing Canadian beer. Which is why this Canada Day, @MolsonCanadian is releasing the most Canadian Case of beer ever - a collaboration of some of the best beers from around the country. So whether it’s a Molson Canadian or something else from another brewery, #MakeItCanadian and let’s celebrate the life blood of post game celebrations, backyard parties and plenty of good times. Keep your eye out for these cases in selected cities or visit to find out more. #canada #canadaday #buylocal

“I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack. I believe in peace keeping, not policing, diversity, not assimilation, and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal. A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch, and it is pronounced 'zed' not 'zee', 'zed' !” - Joe Canadian I say it every year but I’m lucky to represent such a great country. Happy Canada Day everyone! 🇨🇦🥳 #canada #canadaday @teamcanada

The first Olympics I watched were the ‘96 Games in Atlanta. Since then, the Olympics have taught me to dream big, work hard and be gritty, lessons I still take from to this day. To the next kid hoping to strap on a pair of skates and rip around an oval, dream big, work hard and be gritty. Anything is possible. #happyolympicday

Cheers to the 2019/2020 season 🍻! It was a long season with ups and downs but it’s all a part of process. Finishing 11th at World Championships and 11th in the World Cup standings I suppose shows some consistency but we’ll aim higher next year. The field is just getting tougher so we’ll work both smarter and harder to close the gap. Two more years. I want to thank my sponsors Mawer Investment Management, Aucerna, Saguaro and programs like HBC Strength in Stripes and Podium Alberta that allow me to do what do and represent Canada for the last ten years! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Time for the offseason!... after 8 more days of quarantine. 📸 - @neekeanna, @davehollandpics

What a Wednesday night - picked up 🥈 at @dezilverenbal! I won the event in 2016 and I’ve been trying to come back ever since, it didn’t disappoint. Came up short this time around but what an unbelievable atmosphere to race in. Congrats to @_vmmusha_ 🥇 & @mulderronald 🥉 - so much fun racing you boys in the Final! I want to thank everyone at @dezilverenbal for all the hard work they put into creating a skating event fun for both the skater and the fan. One last MASSIVE thank you to @hollandcasino for helping support my travel; I was incredibly honoured to wear your suit on race day. 📸: @neekeanna, @vincentriemersma, @kristianvaarvick

Reminiscing about ALL the epicness that was last year’s @lululemon Outdoor Classic! You would be hard pressed to find a more Canadian thing to participate in than a hockey tournament on a frozen lake in the mountains. So much fun and from the looks of things, this years was just as good. 📸: @mattkorinek, @radmencreative #thesweatlife

We were World Champions for 5 minutes. And then we weren’t. We were the better team today but unfortunately we were disqualified because of an “illegal exchange”. Rules are rules, nevertheless it’s still a tough pill to swallow. Super proud of how the boys skated today and couldn’t have asked for two better guys to take on the world with! @laurent_dubreuil & @antoinegbeaulieu, we left it all on the ice and we can honestly say it was good enough. Let’s get after the rest of the weekend! #schaatsen #speedskating #skating #mawer #aucerna @isuspeedskating @teamcanada @skatetecnl #worldspeed

What. A. Ride. The legend, @dennym16, retires. 4 Olympics medals, 69 World Cup medals, 11 World Championship medals and a couple World Records along the way... I don’t know, is that good 😅? From cheering you on at the Olympics in 2010 to skating side by side for the next 10 years, I still can’t believe I’ve been lucky enough to have called you a teammate, mentor, friend and brother. Through all the ups and downs, it’s been an absolute privilege to have seen your commitment, resilience and general awesomeness first hand - on ice and off. It is a retirement well deserved but by no means does that mean the #AdventuresOfDennyAndGilmore stop. Excited to see what’s next but know I got your back every step of the way. Much love my guy. ✋🏽💪🏽 📸: @bencehorvai

Back in Calgary after a week in Phoenix; it was awesome to go down and get some sun and warm weather but training camp is no vacation. Excited to get back on the ice and make the final push for the World Cup here in Calgary and World Championships in Salt Lake City. Let’s get it 🤘🏽! #schaatsen #speedskating #skating #mawer #aucerna #isu @teamcanada @skatetecnl

The #tbt of all throwbacks. The holiday season is a little crazy but finally got time to put together the highlights of the past 10 years. Through all the highs and lows, the 2010s were filled with so many great memories and I want to thank everyone that has made it so memorable. A journey that started with my first long track competition in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I’ve had the privilege to travel the world and represent the greatest country at multiple World Cups, World Championships and two Olympic Games. I’ve met so many amazing and inspiring people and experienced moments that will last a lifetime. There are 20 photos here but I could’ve put 100! Cheers to another memorable decade and many more adventures. 📸: @schaatsfotos, @tv45235, @davehollandpics, @ef.sportsfoto #newyear #memories #2020 #2020vision #schaatsen #speedskating #skating #mawer #aucerna #isu @teamcanada
