She is best known for finishing third in the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain where she finished behind two athletes representing the Commonwealth of Independent States, Yelena Romanova and Tatyana Samolenko-Dorovskikh.
She first appeared on the international stage in 1985 in Kobe, Japan at the Universiade where she finished third in the 3,000 metres. The following year in Arizona, she won the NCAA Div1 Cross Country Championships for the University of Northern Arizona. This was followed in 1987 with a second place at the Pan American Games in the 3000 meters, in Indianapolis.
1990 saw Chalmers win two Commonwealth Games titles in Auckland, New Zealand, winning both the 1500 m and the 3000 m in a World leading time of 8:38.38. Four years later, in Victoria, Canada, she defended her 3000 m title in a personal best time of 8:32.17 placing her third on the 1994 World rankings (she did not compete in the 1500 meters). She remains the only woman in the history of the Commonwealth Games to successfully defend the 3000 m race. On September 3, 1994 she won the Grand Prix Final of the Women's 1500 meters held in France with a personal best time of 4:01.61.
In 2001, Chalmers was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. She was a recipient of the National Aboriginal Achievement Award, now the Indspire Awards, in the sports category in 1995.
