canada's Weidemann Olympic flag Bearer in 2022 Olympic ceremony!

2022 Olympics: Gold, Silver and Bronze and selected as Canada's Flag bearer

Weidemann’s first medal, a bronze in the women’s 3000m, kickstarted Team Canada’s success in Beijing. It was both the nation’s first medal at Beijing 2022 and its 200th all-time medal at the Olympic Winter Games.

Her success continued at the Ice Ribbon on Day 6, becoming Canada’s first double medallist at these Games after claiming silver in the 5000m. The 26-year-old capped off her impressive run by winning the women’s team pursuit on Day 11 alongside teammates Ivanie Blondin and Valérie Maltais  in an Olympic record time of 2:53.44.

“It’s such an honour to be carrying the Canadian flag in the Closing Ceremony. It’s just been a crazy end to such an unbelievable week. I’m so proud to be a member of this team,” said Weidemann. “I don’t know how many times this week that I’ve shared in other people’s joy and shared in sadness as well. It’s been so incredible to just watch everyone do their best. I love the Olympic Games. I love being part of the Canadian team.


Record Breaking start to 2019-2020 Season

Isabelle started the 2019-20 season by break Cindy Klassen’s fifteen year-old record in the 5000m at the Canadian Team Trials in Calgary and didn’t look back.  She had an outstanding season often battling head-to-head with six-time Olympic medalist and Czech legend Martina Sablikova  (her longtime idol).  

She won medals at five World Cups and ended the season with a Gold Medal performance at the World Cup Finals which secured her 2nd overall for the season — just a few points behind Sablikova.

2018 Olympic Rookie

Isabelle’s first Olympic experience began with her qualifying in three events at the Canadian Olympic Trials; the 3000m, 5000m, and Team Pursuit. At the Olympics in South Korea, Isabelle and her teammates narrowly missed the podium, finishing 4th in the Team Pursuit and she placed an impressive 6th and 7th in the 5000m and 3000m respectively.

Isabelle was disappointed not to land on the podium, but she did send a message to the global skating community that she was becoming one of the dominant skaters in the world.


2018-2019 Season

This was Isabelle’s breakout year, having flirted with the podium in individual events at World Cups for a few years, Isabelle had a breakthrough performance in Japan, in November. On the outdoor track, she won her first individual World Cup medal when she claimed gold in the women's 3000m. The media calling it a surprise, Isabelle made it clear at the next World Cup that it was no fluke -- and finished 2nd in the 5000m in Poland.She wrapped up the fall World Cup tour with another silver medal in the 3000m in Holland and was ranked 1st place in the World Cup overall rankings.


Standing at 6’2”, it’s hard not to draw comparison to Kristina Groves who was also a tall Canadian endurance specialist from Ottawa. The only difference between the two is that Groves had her first taste of international success at the age of 30, while Weidemann was 22 when she won her first World Cup medal.
