Keri Morrison is a recent convert to long track from short track, making the switch ahead of the 2015-16 season in hopes of finding a new love for speed skating. She made her World Cup debut in the fall of 2017, having made use of her experience with pack skating by qualifying for the mass start.
Ben Donnelly had a season to remember in 2015-16. He broke the junior national records in both the 1500m and 3000m. He was crowned the overall world junior champion – just the second Canadian man to win that title – winning gold in the 1000m and 5000m as well as silver in the 1500m and team pursuit to go with a bronze in the mass start.
In her first full senior World Cup season in 2015-16, Isabelle Weidemann finished an impressive fifth in the 5000m in her debut at the World Single Distances Championships. She followed up with a sixth-place finish in 2017, but was less than three seconds off the podium.
Tyler Nicholson joined the national snowboard team for the 2013-14 season and just missed qualifying for Sochi 2014. In January 2017, Nicholson earned his third career World Cup podium as part of a Canadian slopestyle sweep at the Laax Open when he placed third behind teammates Max Parrot and Mark McMorris.
