Visser participated in the women's 5000 metres speed skating as a rookie. The funny thing is that even Visser never thought of walking up the podium. Visser wanted to give her best shot in the women's 5000 metres in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, and that’s it.

In an interview, she said that she wanted to enjoy the race and focus mainly on how she skates. Visser bested her previous record by six seconds, becoming the youngest gold medalist in the speed skating event.
