Blondin pre-qualified to skate in the event back in November, when she showed a very strong performance at the National Team Selection in Calgary. She qualified for the third and fourth stops of the ISU World Cups in short track speed skating, earning a berth for the Canadian Team at the World Junior Championships. A promising 16 year old skater, Blondin competed once before at these championships, two years ago in Serbia and Montenegro. She then won the bronze medal in the relay. The young skater has had a good start to her season this year, winning her first medals on the World Cup circuit (bronze in the relay at the Saguenay World Cup, gold in the relay at the Montreal World Cup) and showing she was already competitive on the individual side, finishing 4th in the 1500m in Saguenay, and then repeating the feat in Montreal.
Orléans speed skater captures first ever World Cup gold medal

Orléans speed skater Ivanie Blondin, 16, won a gold medal in the 3,000 metre relay at a World Cup event in Montreal on the weekend. I
It didn't take long for Orléans speed skater Ivanie Blondin to make a splash on the international short track speed skating scene.
Competing in only her second international event in Montreal on the weekend, the 16-year-old phenom was the only Canadian to qualify for an individual final, finishing fourth in the the 1500 metre event, and she helped her teammates capture gold in the 3,000 metre relay.
Not bad, considering Blondin was the youngest skater in the competition going up against veteran skaters with World Championship and Winter Olympic experience under their belts.
The Garneau High School student also won the B-Final in the second 1500 metre race after she finished third in the semi-final skating against a pair of former World Champions and Olympic gold medalists.
Two weeks ago, she finished fourth in the 1500 metres while competing in her very first World Cup event in Chicoutimi. Her fourth place finish in Montreal and her gold medal performance in the 3,000 metre relay proves that the Grade 11 student is more than ready to take on the best short track speed skaters in the world.
"I wasn't nervous at all because I didn't really have anything to prove. I've never been so not stressed for a race. There was no pressure at all," says Blondin plans to keep building on her recent success.
"After I finished fourth in Chicoutimi I thought maybe I got it because I was a bit lucky, but then when I finished fourth again in Montreal it made me realize that I really belonged there I was just as good as everybody else."
With the success has come a certain amount of celebrity in the form of autograph seekers. It started in Chicoutimi and got even more intense in Montreal.
"It was crazy. I must have signed over a hundred autographs," said Blondin.
Her success at the World Cup bodes well for Blondin as she prepares for the upcoming World Junior Championships which are being held in the Czech Republic from Jan. 14-17.
The following weekend she'll be in Sudbury for the Canadian Open Championships which Speed Skating Canada will use to select the skaters they'll be sending to a pair of World Cup events in Europe in February.
If she finishes third or higher, Blondin will automatically make the team. If she finishes fourth, fifth or sixth, it will be up to the discretion of the national governing body.
