Canadian skeleton racer named one of the three women to represent Canada in skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang after finishing third in the World Cup season standings for 2017–2018.
In 2008, she was encouraged to try sliding sports by her father, who had shared an airplane trip with members of the Canadian luge team, but as a 14-year-old, she was too young to train bobsleigh, so she tried out for skeleton instead. She uses a Bromley sled.
In the 2014–2015 World Cup season, her first on the top level of international sliding, Vathje had five podium finishes including one gold medal, at Calgary, and three silvers, in Lake Placid, St. Moritz and Igls. She subsequently took home gold at races in Whistler (2016) and Winterberg (2017), as well as several additional podium finishes.
She is married to Austrian bobsleigh driver Benjamin Maier.
