Jasmin Glaesser

Jasmin Glaesser’s first international competition for Canada was the 2011 Pan Am Games in Guadalajara where she won gold in the team pursuit with Laura Brown and Steph Roorda, just a month after receiving her Canadian citizenship. She went on to win bronze in the inaugural women’s Olympic team pursuit at London 2012 with Tara Whitten and Gillian Carleton. Prior to being eligible to represent Canada, Glaesser travelled to the 2010 UCI World Championships so she could get a feel for the atmosphere at a major event. That experience proved to be a huge help. Glaesser has since stood on the team pursuit podium at the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 UCI World Championships. She also captured silver and bronze in the points race in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Glaesser’s road racing experience includes the 2013 Giro d’Italia and the 2014 Commonwealth Games. She finished ninth in the time trial at the 2015 Tour of California.
