Biography

Amélie Goulet-Nadon managed to grab national and international attention as a short track speed skater, despite the fact that the international portion of career lasted less than half of a decade. By 2001 she had reached the senior ranks and won a silver medal in the 3,000m relay at that year’s World Championships. She qualified to compete in the event at the 2002 Winter Olympics and did not disappoint, helping her team bring home a bronze medal from the Games. Later that season she also took a bronze medal in the 1,500m event at the World Championships. The following year she was beginning to enter the height of her career, with overall victories in the 500m, 1000m, and 1,500m World Cups and silver medals in the 3,000m relay and 500m events at the World Championships. In the summer of 2004, however, she noticed that she was beginning to have difficulties with her motor patterns. She took a break from training, knowing that it would cost her the chance to compete at the 2006 Winter Olympics, but hoping to recover. Within several months she was suffering from an unexplained loss of control in her muscles and was forced to retire at the age of 23. Since hanging up her skates, she has focused on assisting others by way of her training in naturopathy.
