Marsha Hudey

BIOGRAPHY

A two-time Olympian in long track, Marsha Hudey has been a sprinter with the national team since the 2013-2014 season.

Hudey began speed skating at age four and would work her way up the ranks, eventually winning three gold medals for Saskatchewan at the 2007 Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse. She made her World Cup debut during the 2013-2014 season and earned a spot on the Olympic team for Sochi 2014 later that year, where she finished 31st in the 500m.

After a pair of World Cup bronze medals in the Team Sprint, Hudey captured the first individual distance medal of her career in 2017, brining home silver in the 500m from Stavanger, Norway. She rode that momentum into PyeongChang 2018, where she finished as the top-ranked Canadian woman in the 500m, placing 10th.

She lives in Calgary with her husband Ryan, where she works as a rehabilitation and physiotherapy assistant when she’s not training or competing.
