(L to r) Ivanie Blondin, Isabelle Weidemann and Valerie Maltais proudlt wear their gold medals after winning the team pursuit event at the first World Cup of the season in Stavanger, Norway.

You could forgive speedskaters Ivanie Blondin and Isabelle Weidemann for having a down year following their incredible success at last year's Olympic Games during which they won five medals combined.

But rather than suffer an Olympic hangover, the duo has picked up where they left off by winning three medals, including two gold, at the first World Cup event of the season in Stavanger, Norway on the weekend.

Along with teammate Valérie Maltais, the reigning Olympic and World Cup champions had to come from behind to beat the Netherlands and Japan in the team pursuit event.

Weidemann also won a bronze medal in the 3,000 metres, while Blondin improved on her silver medal performance in the mass start at the Olympics to win gold at the insugral World Cup event of the 2022-2023 season. She also finished 4th in the 1500-metres, just missing the podium.

The pair will be looking to add to their medal totals at the next World Cup event in Heerenveen, Netherlands this weekend.
