2013_05_12_HDSHOT_ME_Drolet-3_1340pxMarie-Ève Drolet returned to the Olympic Winter Games at Sochi 2014, 12 years after she last appeared in Olympic competition at Salt Lake City 2002 where she won a bronze medal as part of the 3000m relay and finished fourth in the 1000m.

Drolet had retired from short track speed skating in May 2003 when she was just 21 to explore other interests, such as travelling and her education. She completed her BA in Psychology at the University of Montreal in 2005 and then moved on to study acupuncture. In September 2007 she stepped back on the ice and her love of skating immediately returned. She joined a local club in Victoria in January 2008 and then in August moved to Calgary to resume formal training. She competed at two World Cup stops during the 2008-09 season but was unable to crack the Olympic team for Vancouver 2010.

Undeterred, Drolet continued to compete. She won four individual World Cup medals during the 2010-11 season. In 2012 she won her first individual world championship medal since 2001 when she took bronze in the 1500m.

Drolet had been a top-ranked junior competitor, winning the overall title at the 2000 and 2001 World Junior Championships before heading to her first Olympic Games at age 20. For three straight years (1999-2001) she was named Speed Skating Canada’s Female Athlete of the Year for short track.
