Weidemann breaks cindy klassen's 15-year old Record in the 5000m to start the 2019-2020 season!
Standing at 6’2”, it’s hard not to draw comparison to Kristina Groves who was also a tall Canadian endurance specialist from Ottawa. The only difference between the two is that Groves had her first taste of international success at the age of 30, while Weidemann was only 22 when she first stepped on a World Cup podium.
Her first Olympic season (2018) started with Izzy qualifying in three events at the Canadian Olympic Trials, the 3000m, 5000m, and Team Pursuit. At the Olympics in Korea, Isabelle and her teammates barely missed the podium, finishing 4th in the Team Pursuit. She also had some solid individual results coming in 6th and 7th in the 5000m and 3000m respectively. Despite not winning an Olympic medal, she did send a message to the skating world that she was becoming one of the dominant distance skaters on the planet.
The 2018-2019 season was her breakout year, having flirted with the podium in individual events at World Cups for a few years, Isabelle had a breakthrough performance in Tomakomai, JPN, in November. On the outdoor track, she won her first individual World Cup medal when she claimed gold in the women's 3000m. The media calling it a surprise, Izzy made it clear the following weekend that that was no fluke and finished 2nd in the 5000m in Poland.
She wrapped up the fall World Cup tour with another silver medal in the 3000m in Holland and is now sitting in first in the World Cup overall rankings. At the 2019 World Allround Championships which crowns the best skater over four distances she finished 6th place - placed 2nd in the 5,000m and 3rd in the 3000m, and the top North American Skater.
Izzy is quickly becoming a team leader despite her young age. With Olympic experience and a taste of victory on the sport's biggest stage, we're excited to see what she's got in store for the next two, maybe three Olympic cycles!
