Orléans speed skater claims silver at World Championships

Orléans speed skater Ivanie Blondin has added another world championship silver medal to her collection after placing second in the ladies mass start event at the World Single Distance Championships in Inzell, Germany last weekend.

The accomplishment was no small feat owing to the fact that see had to come back to the lead pack after being tripped up and sent sprawling to the ice on the 10th lap. She was able to recover and eventually took the lead on the next to last lap before being passed by the Dutch skater Irene Schouten in the race to the finish line.

“I’m pretty ecstatic about the result today,” Blondin told reporters after the race. “I sacrificed my 1500m race today to save my legs for the final sprint. I was able to start the final sprint a bit earlier and create a gap, so I’m really happy with my decision and race plan.”

The Gloucester Concorde member now has three world championship medals in her collection. She previously won the gold medal in the mass start in 2016 and a silver medal in 2015.

The race was eerily reminiscent of the mass start semi-final at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, Korea last year when Blondin was unable to recover from a late fall and ended up missing the final.

Besides the mass start event, Blondin placed sixth in the 5,000 metres in Inzell and fourth in the women’s team pursuit with fellow Concordes member and Orléans native Isabelle Weidemann, and Quebec skater Valérie Maltais.

Weidemann also placed fourth in the 5,000 metres in apersonal best time of 6:56.13. It was her best ever result at the World Championships.

The Canadian team will now prepare for the World Allround Championships taking place in Calgary from March 2-3.
