Maddison Pearman was confident in her team ahead of the ISU Four Continents Speed Skating Championships and they delivered on the weekend.
At the inaugural event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Pearman helped Team Canada make history Friday, winning gold in the team sprint with Noémie Fiset and Brooklyn McDougall.
Pearman, 24, won her second medal of the weekend Sunday, capturing silver in the ladies team pursuit. Along with Lindsey Kent and Alexa Scott, they finished in a time of 3:06.604, just behind the USA and ahead of China.
“It’s a younger team; Lindsey and I train together, but Alexa is new to that. We didn’t really have much time to train together, but we did a really good job of communicating with each other and sticking together to pull off a good race,” Pearman said.
“We have so much to learn and I think we have a lot of potential to be ‘the team’ in the next Olympic cycle.”
Individually, the Ponoka product was sixth on Saturday in the ladies 1500 metre race, in a time of 2:00.111 and eighth in the 1000m in 1:17.354.
Pearman is now set to suit up this weekend at the ISU World Cup race on her home track at the Olympic Oval in Calgary. The event is Friday and Saturday.
