Sochi 2014 was Audrey Robichaud’s second Olympic appearance and she finished 10th in the ladies’ moguls. She had made her Olympic debut as a 17-year-old at Turin 2006.
Robichaud has been competing on the World Cup circuit since January 2005. As a 16-year-old, she was named the FIS Rookie of the Year for 2004-05. She would finish eighth at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games before ever competing at the world championships. Despite the early breakthrough, Robichaud would not reach her first World Cup podium until January 2011 and would go on to finish third in the 2010-11 World Cup moguls standings. In 2011 she also returned to the world championships for the first time since 2007, posting a top-10 finish in moguls. Robichaud achieved another career first in February 2013, recording her first World Cup moguls victory.
Getting Into Sport: Has been skiing since she was four and started doing moguls at age seven… Was scared of the bumps at first and thought she would be the only girl doing freestyle at Le Relais, but she quickly found out that she was wrong on both fronts… Made the national team at age 16… School: Studying human sciences by correspondence… Odds and Ends: Nickname: Drey… Motto: Peace and love… Her biggest challenge was giving up poutine…
