World Championships start tomorrow and I’ll be racing the 500m on Friday. Coach and I are dialled in! True story, when I started speed skating I only knew of three speed skaters: Jeremy Wotherspoon, Catriona Le May Doan and Shannon Rempel. It was pretty surreal when I met Shannon, even more surreal when we became teammates. Now she’s my coach at World Championships! Funny how things turn out. #mawer #speedskating #schaatsen #upagain @ssc_pvc #fasterforward @teamcanada #worldchampionships

Hello 2021! 👋🏽 2020 was an interesting one to say the least. No doubt this year will come with its challenges but with that comes new opportunity. Wishing everyone all the best in chasing a new year of goals with hopefully(!) less lockdowns and Zoom calls! Happy New Year everyone! 📸: @candicewardphotography

After announcements from Speed Skating Canada and the International Skating Union, there will be no international or domestic competitions for the next little while. Although disappointing, the health and safety of everyone during this time is the top priority. So we wait, do our work at home and stay ready for that day they tell us we can “go to the start”. #patientlywaiting #beready 📸: @daveholland, @tv45235

“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
