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 👀.
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 www.thecanadiancase.ca to find out more.
“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! 🇨🇦🥳
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
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
Might get chirped but full disclosure, I left my razor at the hotel in Warsaw last week so I didn’t end #Movember as strong as I would’ve liked... but it was a great month rocking the moustache on the road nonetheless!
A sincere thank you again to everyone that donated to this great cause. Joined up with some other greasy speed skaters and raised $4248 in the name of men’s health. Like I’ve said before, it was a little more personal this time around and it was awesome to get all the support. Until next year 👨🏾!
