Blondin posted a time of 7:18.45 in speed skating's signature endurance event for the women at the 2014 Canadian Olympic Speed Skating Trials at the Olympic Oval in Calgary. Blondin beat out Nicole Garrido of Edmonton, Alberta by 0.42 seconds.
Blondin is part of a Canadian women's speed skating program that is in a period of transition. Besides the struggling Christine Nesbitt of London, Ontario and the women's team pursuit, nothing much is expected from the Canadian women's team.
This will be Blondin's first Olympic Winter Games. According to Laurence Heinen of the Canadian Press, Blondin attempted to make Team Canada in long track speed skating and short track speed skating at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, but failed to make the Olympic team. She blamed a stomach ulcer caused by nerves as the primary reason for her disappointment.
