2013_05_12_HDSHOT_Jess_Gregg-3_1340pxWith a speed skater mother and a hockey player father, it was only natural that Jessica Gregg would love competing on ice. But she has found a unique path for herself as the family’s only short track speed skater.

Gregg made her Olympic debut at Vancouver 2010 along with her older brother Jamie who is a member of the long track national team. Her favourite Olympic memory is walking into the Opening Ceremony with Jamie. She was part of the silver medal-winning 3000m relay squad and came close to standing on the podium by herself when she finished fourth in the 500m. She added a sixth place finish in the 1000m.

A year earlier Gregg had been named Speed Skating Canada’s Female Athlete of the Year for short track after winning her first individual World Cup gold medal as well as a bronze medal in the 500m at the 2009 World Championships.

Gregg’s post-Olympic journey has been a little more difficult. In March 2011 she suffered a concussion when she fell hard into the rink padding for the second time that season. That kept her from competing at the 2011 World Championships. She also missed the entire 2011-12 season. Gregg returned to the World Cup squad in 2012-13 and earned two more World Cup medals in the 500m, including her second career gold. It is this comeback of which she is most proud in her career.
