As a young girl growing up in Regina, Kim Weger's ringette coach suggested she try speed skating as a way to improve her fledgling skills. It was the best advice the nine-year-old ever received. She enjoyed speed skating so much that ringette was tossed aside in favour of her exciting new sport.

By 1997, Weger was on the national team's radar. In both 1997 and 1998, the swift-skating sprinter finished in fifth place overall at the Canadian Junior Championships. By 2000, she had graduated to the senior ranks, where she finished seventh overall at the Canadian Sprint Championships. In 2002, she would take part in her first Senior World Championships, finishing 27th overall.

Over the next few seasons, Weger would remain in somewhat of a holding pattern, stuck in third place at the Canadian Sprint Championships. Then at the Olympic trials in late December of 2005, the 25-year-old would finally put together solid back-to-back races, averaging a sizzling 38.79 seconds. That was good enough for second place in the event behind Shannon Rempel, earning both skaters a ticket to Turin in 2006,

Away from the track, Weger likes to snowboard, read and hang out with friends.
