Gillian Carleton competed at her first Olympic Games in London and won bronze in the team pursuit with Tara Whitten and Jasmin Glaesser.
Also in 2012, Carleton helped lead the Canadian team comprised of herself, Glaesser and Whitten to a bronze medal in the team pursuit event at the World Championships in Melbourne.
Carleton took up track cycling during the summer of 2011. She medalled in three events at the 2011 Canadian National Track Cycling Championships. Carleton also earned a spot to compete on the national team heading into the first World Cup of the 2011-12 season in Astana, Kazakhstan and finished fourth in the points race after fighting back from a crash.
She won two medals at the 2009 Canada Games, gold in the road race and silver in the individual time trial.
