BIOGRAPHY

A sprint specialist, Kaylin Irvine has gone on to represent Canada at two Olympic Games since joining the national long track team in 2011.

Irvine took up speed skating at the age of 10 in Fort St. John and continued skating in Northern B.C. until her family moved back to her hometown of Calgary when she was 15. She began training at the Olympic Oval and joined the national team program when she turned 20 years old.

Irvine made her World Cup debut during the 2011-2012 season and followed that up with her first ever trips to the World Sprint Championships and World Single Distances Championships. She competed in her first full international season the following year and has been a mainstay on the team ever since. Over the course of her career, she has won a pair of World Cup bronze medals in the Team Sprint, while also brining home silver from the 2019 World Championships in the same discipline.

Irvine became an Olympian at Sochi 2014, where she finished 17th in the 1000m. She also competed in that distance four years later at PyeongChang 2018, where she was ranked 23rd.
