Long post but please read... My long time coach and friend, Alan McIlveen, suffered a massive stroke late last week. As a result, he was rushed to hospital where he underwent surgery and remains under the supervision of the doctors and specialists there. While surgery went well and the doctors are happy with how he is progressing, Alan is on a very long road to recovery. As of now, it is much too early to tell what kind of support he will need but we’ve started a GoFundMe campaign where funds raised will be utilized to help and ensure a smoother transition and recovery for him (link in bio). Whether you donate or not, please keep Alan in your thoughts and prayers and share this with anyone who’s lives have been impacted by Alan’s passion for speed skating and coaching. There are very few people that have impacted my life like Alan McIlveen has. Alan started coaching me in 2004 and we experienced a lot of highs and lows together. Even when I moved to long track, he’s always had my back. I owe a lot of my success to Alan, words cannot express my gratitude for all he’s done, not only for myself, but all of his athletes he’s coached. Much love man.

Back home and although World Championships didn’t go the way I hoping or expected, cannot deny how great it is to put on suit and represent 🇨🇦! Thank you to the coaching staff, service team and teammates of @ssc_pvc for giving me every chance to succeed. Massive thank you to my sponsors #Aucerna, @lululemon, @RBC and @craigsenyk, along with the program initiatives of @hudsonsbay’s Strength in Stripes and @albertagames - you allow me to live my dream day in and day out and your support pushes me to be better. Last month of the season and still a handful of races to go - moving forward.

A kid transferring from hockey, I started my career at an identification camp very similar to that of @RBC Training Grounds. 15 years later, two Olympics and countless memories, don’t know where I would be if I didn’t take that leap all those years ago.
