Speed Skating





Alexandra is an Olympic speed skater, cyclist and personal trainer, currently living and training in Europe. She competes in the 500m, 1000m and 1500m distances on the ice, as well as track cycling.

Alexandra started skiing, skating and playing tennis at the age of 2, and immigrated with her family to Toronto, Canada in 2001. Alexandra’s mother was Romanian national champion in ’86, and encouraged Alex to pursue her dreams of representing Canada on the world stage.

Dream became reality when Alex represented Canada at Junior World Championships 2011, and later made her debut on the Canadian National Team and World Cup Circuit in 2014. She has since competed in 2 World Sprint Championships and over 48 World Cup races, and 1 Olympics.

Alex currently holds the national record on the 500m and 1000m distances. She has competed at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, Korea, and looks forward to competing in 2022 in Beijing.

While Alex is not busy training, she is writing training programs for her clients through her business "Body By Alex", cooking or working on her cookbook she will be publishing. She is a big fan of Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones, and you can find her traveling to see them whenever they tour.
