Kaylin Irvine has dreamed of being an Olympian since she was 11 or 12 and attended a western provinces summer ice camp. While listening to Olympic team members talk about their experiences she just had a feeling that she was going to do that too.
Irvine made her World Cup debut in January 2012 and followed that up with her first ever trips to the World Sprint Championships and World Single Distances Championships. In 2012-13 she competed in her first full World Cup season and returned to the World Single Distances Championships where she finished 13th in the 1000m.
Getting into the Sport: Started speed skating at age 10 after a family friend noticed how muscular her thighs were and suggested she try it… Odds and Ends: General studies at the University of Calgary…
