a-duckworthAlexandra Duckworth was able to experience the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games up close, but not exactly as she had dreamed. A skateboard accident in October 2009, in the middle of the Olympic qualification period, left her with a broken ankle that caused her to come one place short of making the Olympic team. Instead she was named as an alternate and served as one of the forerunners who tested the halfpipe prior to the competition. Four years later she became an Olympian and finished 17th at Sochi 2014.

Having made her World Cup debut in December 2005, Duckworth has been a regular competitor on the circuit since 2008. She has also been active on the World Snowboard Tour. In February 2012 she suffered another injury setback when a crash during a slopestyle event led to a broken big toe that required surgery along with bruised soft tissue and bones in her foot.

Duckworth produced a career highlight at the 2013 World Championships where her 10th place finish was the best by the Canadian women’s halfpipe team.
