Sport Specific Information
Reason for choosing this sportShe was member of the Alberta U18 hockey team when she decided to try speed skating. "I wanted to try something new. When I did, I fell in love with it, so I made the switch. When I'm racing, you get adrenaline rush. I love that feeling. It's a different feeling compared to any other sports, anything else I've done."
