Jasmin Duehring (née Glaesser) is a German-Canadian cyclist.[1] Duehring was part of the Canadian team that won bronze medals at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games in the women's team pursuit. She was also part of the team that won gold at the 2011 Pan American Games in the team pursuit.

Career[edit]

Glaesser took up cycling in 2009[3] when seeking a lower-impact sport after suffering hip injuries as a runner whilst at Terry Fox Secondary School. Glaesser also participated in ballet and figure skating whilst growing up.[4]

Her first competition for Canada was at the 2011 Pan American Games where she won gold for her new nation. Glaesser then appeared for Canada at the 2012 World Championships, there she won a silver in the points race before adding a bronze as a member of the team pursuit.[5] She built onto this the next season, where she finished in preparation for the Olympics second in the team pursuit at the Track Cycling World Cup in London in February 2012 and won bronze as a part of the Canada's women's team pursuit at the 2012 Olympics together with Tara Whitten and Gillian Carleton.[6] After winning the bronze Glaesser said "We were so ready to just go out there and do our best. Team Canada, in coming here, has a saying, ‘Give Your Everything, and that was kind of our motto — leave everything out there."[7]

In 2016, she was officially named in Canada's 2016 Olympic team, and again won a bronze medal.[8]

Personal[edit]

Glaesser was born in Paderborn, Germany and currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.[1] Glaesser moved to Canada at the age of eight when her father took a position at Simon Fraser University teaching computer science.[4] She received her Canadian citizenship shortly before the 2012 Olympics.[9]
