Statement by Minister St-Onge on the First Medal for Canada at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games

We are off to an amazing start at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games. It is with great pride I congratulate Isabelle Weidemann, who has won a bronze medal in long track speed skating – women’s 3000m, the first medal for Canada at these Games.
This is Isabelle Weidemann’s first Olympic medal in her second Olympic Winter Games appearance. Canadians from coast to coast to coast are immensely proud of your performance, Isabelle Weidemann.
Through your performance, you showed confidence, discipline and a commitment to excellence.
You are a role model for all of us, especially our youth. I know Canadians all across the country are supporting you.
It feels great to celebrate such an amazing accomplishment! I am confident that more medals will be won.
Let’s cheer on our athletes as they proudly represent our country! Go Canada!
