The Canadian speed-skating legend, who was born and raised in Winnipeg, is a six-time Olympic medallist. She became the only Canadian athlete to reach the podium five times in a single Olympics, winning one gold, two silver and two bronze in 2006.
“The funny thing is since I was a kid I always wanted to be a police officer, and then when I finally retired from speed skating I thought, ‘Oh I’m way too old to do it’,” she said.
她說: “有趣的是, 打從我還是個小孩我就想成為一名警察，然後當我終於從速度滑冰退休時，我想： ‘哦，我現在當警察太老了'”
“There is such a crossover – just the hard work and dedication and determination that I had from speed skating. I take that over into my career as a police officer,” she said.
她說: “就是這樣的一個交叉點 – 我就把付出在速度滑冰中的努力，奉獻和決心，運用到我作警察的職業生涯裡。”
“After going through a whole career of speed skating and being given so much in my career as an athlete, I really wanted to give back and give back to the community,” she said.
