2-time Canadian Olympic speed skating medallist Pascal Dion calls it a career

Pascal Dion has retired from Canada's short-track speed skating team after a 10-year career that included two Olympic medals.

The 29-year-old from Montreal announced his decision Wednesday in a Speed Skating Canada news release.

Dion helped Canada win gold in the men's 5,000-metre relay at 2022 Beijing Olympics alongside teammates Charles Hamelin, Steven Dubois, Jordan Pierre-Gilles and Maxime Laoun.

He was also a member of the relay team that won bronze at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in South Korea.

"People often say that high-performance sport is a big sacrifice, but I never saw it like that," Dion said in the news release. "I always had fun doing what I was doing, and I count myself lucky to have had these opportunities.

"I'm happy with what I've experienced and I'm happy with all the results I've had, especially the last few years where I managed to shine a little brighter in individual distances."

Dion also won five world championship medals over his career. He was second overall at the 2022 world championships in Montreal after winning gold in the 3,000 metres, silver in the 1,500 and bronze in the 5,000 relay.

He made his World Cup debut in 2015 and won 36 career medals (15 gold, 11 silver, 10 bronze) on the circuit.
