Kim Boutin

BIOGRAPHY

A triple Olympic medalist and current world record holder in the 500m, Kim Boutin has been one of the world’s most dominant short track skaters since joining the international circuit during the 2014-2015 season.

A native of Sherbrooke, Boutin represented Canada at the World Junior Championships in both 2013 and 2014, winning silver alongside the women’s relay team in her final appearance at the junior level. She made her World Cup debut the following season and has gone on to win an impressive 50 medals, including 16 gold. She has also reached the World Championship podium six times, highlighted by a career-best bronze medal in the overall in 2019.

In her Olympic debut at PyeongChang 2018, Boutin captured three medals – silver in the 1000m and bronze in both the 500m and 1500m – becoming only the second women to reach the podium in each of the three individual distances at the same Olympic Games. She also became the fourth Canadian athlete, and second Canadian women, to win three medals at a single Games.

Boutin was absolutely dominant on the World Cup stage during the 2019-2020 season, winning 13 medals, including five consecutive gold medals in the 500m and Canada’s first relay gold medal since the 2014-2015 season. She also set a new world record in the 500m, becoming the first women to break the 42-second mark in the distance.

Boutin was named Speed Skating Canada’s short track Rising Star in 2015 and was the recipient of the Nathalie Lambert Award for Female Short Track Athlete of the Year in both 2018 and 2020.
