BIOGRAPHY

Danaé Blais has been a member of the national short track team since the 2018-2019 season.

A native of Châteauguay, Blais represented Canada at three World Junior Championships from 2016 to 2018, winning a historic gold medal in the women’s relay in her final appearance at the junior level alongside fellow national team members Courtney Sarault, Alyson Charles and Claudia Gagnon.

Blais made her World Cup debut during the 2018-2019 season, winning the first two medals of her career in only her second competition, which included gold in the mixed gender relay alongside her brother, recently retired national team skater Cédrik Blais. She took part in the inaugural Four Continents Championships in 2019, winning silver in the women’s relay, and made her World Championships debut in 2021.
