Quebec Olympic Athletes: Valérie Maltais

Valerie Maltais is a Canadian speed skater for the Olympics. She is a student. She was born in Canada in La Baie and her birth date is the 7th of April in 1990.Today,she is 20 years old and her height is 5.4(163 cm) and her weight is 52 kg (115 lbs). She has been starting to play since 2005. Her trainers are Martin Gagné, and Sébastien Cross. Her hobbies are to rollerblade, going to the movies, photography, the outdoors, cycling and to spend time with her friends, plus, she also has a club. It’s called Les F18 de La Baie: Canada.

Now for my opinion, I say Valérie is very talented and a very fast speed skater. I wonder why she chose that sport? Because she’s good at it, it’s her passion, as like her dream, or because she wanted to be famous and have fans plus it’s what she wants as a sport? I think it’s because it’s her passion and dream. I find it’s a good sport and looks fun to do. This was my Olympic person I’m interested in. I’m interested in it because maybe I’d want to do the same as her when I grow up.

To move on with the rankings, here are the latest results she made lately. For the World Championships,she got 3rd place in a 3000 meter Relay in 2009 at Vienna,AUT.
