Heidi Widmer made her Olympic debut at Sochi 2014, where she followed in the footsteps of older brother Philip, who represented Canada at Turin 2006. It was watching him qualify for that Olympic team that sparked her own desire and belief that it would be possible for her to one day also achieve her Olympic dreams.

Specializing in the sprint, Widmer trains with the Alberta World Cup Academy, part of the World Cup legacy in Canmore. Widmer has competed at the FIS World Junior Championships four times (2008-11) and the FIS Under-23 World Championships twice (2012-13). She won her first senior national title in 2013 when she took gold in the 5km freestyle event.
