Devin Heroux competed at his first World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon in 2022 where he ran the 800m media race, recording a time of 2 minutes 36.48 seconds for his two laps around the Hayward Field track. That ranked him 42nd in a field of 150. He has his work cut out for him if he wants to challenge world bronze medallist Marco Arop (whose podium time was almost a minute faster).
Heroux had been training to make his Winter Olympic debut at Milano Cortina 2026 in long track speed skating. With just one loop around the Olympic Oval, Speed Skating Canada knew Heroux had a bright future in long track speed skating.
Originally from Saskatoon, Heroux was first captivated by the Olympic Winter Games while watching the Saskatchewan curling team led by Sandra Schmirler win gold at Nagano 1998.
Heroux is a multi-sport athlete, previously representing Canada at Tokyo 2020 on Twitter.
