Ivanie Blondin - Envision Sports & Entertainment

Canadian Long-Track Speed Skater Ivanie Blondin made her Olympic debut at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games after learning to skate when she was just 2 years old. Whatever she lacked in gracefulness, she made up for in power and speed. When she was 6, her frustrated figure skating coach suggested her parents get Ivanie into speed skating and they’ve never looked back.

Coming back from the Pyeongchang Olympics empty handed, Ivanie was devastated but she has persevered and 2020 was Ivanie’s most successful season yet with 12 World Cup medals and a World Championship title. Despite less than ideal preparation as a result of COVID-19, Ivanie travelled to the 2021 ISU World Long Track Speed Skating in Netherlands where she won two medals. She continued her elite form into the Beijing 2022 Olympics, capturing a Gold Medal in the women’s Team Pursuit event and a thrilling Silver Medal in the boisterous women’s Mass Start event.

Off the ice, Ivanie finds purpose in fostering animals and spending time with her partner Konrad.
