A bright light for the future of Canadian figure skating, Gabrielle Daleman was the youngest member of the entire Canadian Olympic Team that competed at Sochi 2014. The 16 year old finished 17th in her Olympic debut one month before competing at her first ISU World Championships where she finished 13th.
In her senior debut at the Canadian championships in 2013, Daleman captured the silver medal. That came one year after she had been the junior national champion. She went on to finish sixth in her first appearance at the ISU World Junior Championships in 2013, matching Canada’s best ladies’ result at the event since 2002.
Daleman made her senior international debut at the ISU World Team Trophy in April 2013, helping Canada win the silver medal. She competed on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series in the fall of 2013.
