Ted-Jan Bloemen Biography

Dutch-born Ted-Jan Bloemen moved to his father’s birth country in June 2014 and joined the Canadian national team for the 2014-15 season after receiving his new passport. He made an almost immediate impact, helping Canada win team pursuit silver at the 2015 World Single Distances Championships.

He followed up with a career year in 2015-16. At the second World Cup of the season in Salt Lake City in November, he broke the 10,000m world record that had stood since March 2007 with his time of 12:36.30. Bloemen went on to win 10,000m silver at the World Single Distances Championships for Canada’s first major international medal in speed skating’s longest event since the 1932 Olympic Winter Games. He also won bronze with the team pursuit at the worlds. He was named that year’s winner of the Oscar Mathisen Award for the single most outstanding speed skating performance in the world and was Speed Skating Canada’s Long Track Male Athlete of the Year.

Although he narrowly missed the world championship podium in 2016-17, Bloemen’s consistency throughout the season led to him finishing second in the overall World Cup standings for the 5000m/10,000m. Among the highlights was his first career World Cup victory in the 5000m. In December 2017, Bloemen set the 5000m world record at the World Cup in Salt Lake City. His time of 6:01.86 broke a 10-year-old mark. He stood on all three 5000m podiums in the fall of 2017 to go with a silver medal in the only 10,000m World Cup of the season.

Bloemen had first represented his native Netherlands on the World Cup circuit in 2007-08 and competed at the World Allround Championships in 2010 and 2012, finishing fourth overall in his debut. He spent eight years in the highly competitive Dutch system, but after not qualifying for Sochi 2014 he had a lingering sense that his best skating was still ahead of him, if he could just find the right training environment. He found that in Canada, calling the move to Calgary the best decision he ever made.
