With my speed skating career now behind me, I'm excited to start carving a new path in life. I enjoyed every bit of my career on the ice reaching every international podium at least once at the World Cups, at World Championships, and at the Olympics. And while doing that, successfully completing a double major in Chemical Engineering and Economics at the University of Calgary. I'm very proud of everything I have accomplished throughout my career, and of the person I've become as a result of it.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my career. Although I may not be as active on my website moving forward, you will always be able to stay connected through the Contact Page, Twitter, or Facebook.

Today I officially announced my retirement from speed skating. After just over 20 years of being an athlete in the sport, I decided it was time to move on to new things. I'm extremely proud of everything I have accomplished in this sport, and am now excited for what lies ahead of me.

In today's Team Pursuit B final we lost to team Poland to finish 4th overall.
It’s tough being so close to the podium again. But that’s just the way it goes sometimes, as hard as that is to say. I know we put our best race plan together and I don’t think we could have done anything differently to have had a better race. So in that respect, we did everything we could on the given day.

After the first two rounds of the Team Pursuit we'll be fighting for the bronze medal against team Poland. I'll give a full breakdown after the finals wrap up tomorrow. Wish us luck!!

If you didn't get a chance to see the results yet from today's 1500m, I finished 28th in a time of 1:48.51.
I'm actually quite happy with my 1500 here at the Games. Not because of the result, but because of how I skated it. I felt great in my prep, had some of the best race focus I've had all year, and I executed my race as planned. To be able to look back on my prep with no regrets is an awesome feeling! The best part is that some of the positive changes I've made technically have really only started to become apparent in the past couple of days. So with another week before the team pursuit it's going to be a lot of fun building on that momentum as I prepare to race the TP again with Mathieu and Denny. It's never over until it's over!!
