Anne-Marie Comeau came back from two years away from cross-country skiing to qualify for PyeongChang 2018. Having last competed internationally in December 2015, she decided in November 2017 that she wanted to take a shot at the Olympic team. The next month, she was entered in a Nor-Am Cup event in Vernon, B.C., racing on the same skis she had used at the 2012 Junior World Championships. In early January 2018, she stood on the Nor-Am Cup podium twice in three days, winning silver in the skiathlon and bronze in the 10km classic in Mont Ste-Anne, Quebec. Just a few days later, she earned silver in a 10km free FIS race in Vermont.
Comeau was just 16 when she made her World Cup debut when the circuit came to Canmore in December 2012. She competed at four straight junior world championships from 2012 to 2015 before deciding to step away from skiing to focus on running. She represented the Laval Rouge et Or in both cross-country running and track and field.
