It's going to be an exciting season leading up to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Summer training will be as intense as ever and the Fall World Cups will be the testing grounds for fine-tuning the body before Olympic Trials at the end of December.
2014 will be a milestone year for me as I look to step on the top of the Olympic Podium once again, while graduating from the University of Calgary with a double major in Chemical Engineering and Economics. Come back often and stay connected through Facebook and Twitter throughout the year!
Thanks for your support!

"My races this weekend gave me a lot of confidence back. The changes I've made over the past week and a half are making a big difference and I'm feeling better on my skates every day. It was just really unfortunate to run into the crossover problem in the first lap of my 1500m. The 1000m went quite well though, so I'm quite happy with the weekend."
